Changing a target name


When I trace to a target (usually by entering an IP address), it shows up with a name that isn't very helpful. Is there any way to change that?


Yup. There are several possibilities here.

  1. When entering the target IP address, add an 'alias' after the IP address. We talk about this more in our knowledge base article on labeling an IP address.
  2. If you're using PingPlotter Pro, we have an extension that will let you rename any hop or target. You can get that extension here.
