P2S VPN Client rename RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    is there a way to rename the P2S client on Windows? Renaming the connection name under connection properties breaks the functionality of the VPN client. And since I have multiple "Hub" VNets... you know.

    Cheers, Matt

  • Hi Matt, 

    I kind of tried a workaround. You will still see the same name when you connect, but post connection you will see the name which you have defined. 

    Here are the steps:

    Navigate to this path: C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Cm\035fc714-000d-486f-a0c7-9255d7aa2023

    You will see CMS file. 

    Just click on edit and replace the name of the VNET to your custom name. 



    Then save this file and try connecting again. 

    Note: It is not recommended to change the CMS file, just suggested a workaround.

  • I just tried your workaround. But unfortunately it failed.

    Is there any chance to rename the connection display name?

    It would be great a renaming of the P2S connection would be possible. With different P2S connections configured for different customers/Azure environments on one client it would be great to rename the connections.
