Modify network interface name

By cornejo.alvaro ·
Hi

Is there a way to modify the name of an network interface?

for example if I run

C>browstat status

The results shows the interface names are shown as:

\Device\Nbf_{45390446-0C98-4C76-8321-40847AA787A3}

and if I want to verify or get the status of the specific interface I've to enter the whole string.

Can I modify this {45390446-0C98-4C76-8321-40847AA787A3} string or create a sort of nickname for it?

If i go to the registry on HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\adapter ID

The adapter ID is the same as I get with the browstat command.

Regards

Alvaro C.

I don't believe you can, however see the White Paper on this subject at: http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/techresources/commnet/browser/ntbrowser.asp.

I hope this helps.

The Interface name change is not intended for the browser service only but all commands related to an specific interface.
