Change Server Name

Postby immortal » Fri Jul 06, 2018 9:04 pm


In 'Options'>'Servers' is it possible to change the name of the server(s) that I have? the name is dulled out and doesn't allow changes.
Can this be changed in a config file somewhere?
Or do I have to delete and re-add with a new name. I don't really want to do this as it currently has downloaded quantity.

Using version: 6.80: 00 C2 D4 45 DB 86 (Build 5058)

You can't change the name easily because if you download headers, changing the name of the server will disconnect the header downloads from the server (they're identified by name). If you don't use headers or don't mind downloading them again, the easiest thing is to make a new server then use the old server as the template. Give it a new name. You'll then have two identical servers other than the name. You can delete the one you don't want at that point.
