How to change the name of a NetPlus Router (NPR) in I/NET

Issue

It may be desirable to change the default name of an NPR as it appears in I/NET (ie XentaXB2435) to something more descriptive.

Product Line

TAC I/NET

Environment

  • I/NET
  • I/O Server Config
  • Xenta 527, Xenta 527-NPR, Xenta 731, Xenta 913

Cause

I/NET generates a unique default name for each NPR. While the default name differentiates the NPRs it may be helpful to have a descriptive and relevant name for each NPR.

Resolution

  1. Open the I/NET IO Server Config.
  2. Select the IP Port connection of the NPR to be changed and select Modify to open the Configuration Profile.
  3. Click on NP Routers to open the NetPlus Routers Summary.
  4. Select the router that you want to change and click Modify to open the NetPlus Router Configuration.
  5. Enter a new name for the NetPlus Router and click OK.

The NPR will now re-initialize and will have the new name.
