2.6.7. Address Settings Administrative Web Page

You can assign names to IP Addresses, IP Networks and MAC Addresses.

The advantage of using names is that when you have to change an internal server's IP Address, or exchange a network card (with a different MAC), there is only one place that needs modification, and you do not have to change multiple outgoing rules, pinholes and portforwards.

2.6.7.1. Add address

In the first section you give an Address or Network a Name.
