Users have the ability to change a controller's Computer Name and Instance Number when performing a transfer to an IP device.

Note: Do not assign an Instance Number of 1 to a controller because it is reserved for the tool.

To Update a Computer Name During a Transfer to Device

  1. In the Transfer Files window, click the Computer Name combo box in the New Information column.
  2. Enter a new computer name or click the down arrow icon for name suggestions from the CAF.
  3. Specify the changes required for Transfer Operations. See Step 5 in Transferring to a Device for further information.
  4. Click Finish. When the Transfer to Device completes, your Computer Name is updated.
    Note: There may be a delay in the Computer Name updating due to system DNS caching. To work around the delayed DNS caching, run ipconfig/ flushdns in a command line to immediately flush the DNS and update the Computer Name.

To Update an Instance Number During a Transfer to Device
