VSP Name Selection

Top  Previous  Next

 

On this step you select the name of the VSP that will be configured on the PC side of the VSP-to-DS connection. VSP names look like the numbers of regular COMs, i.e. COM1, COM2, COM3.

Choosing select existing VSP option displays the list of VSPs that are already found on your system (i.e. the ones that have been created before).

 

Choosing create new VSP option displays the list of unused VSP names (shown above). The number of ports you can have in Windows is virtually unlimited- the Connection Wizard lets you create any port in the range between COM1 and COM255*.

 

There are no rules on what VSP name to choose but some considerations are provided here.

 

* We could extend the number even further but feel that the current range is sufficient for all practical purposes.
