  4. Click Edit. This will give you a list of services with a check box for each LAN port. This will let you set certain services to only use certain ports. For instance, you may want to limit iSCSI functionality to only one port to allow you keep all iSCSI traffic on a separate subnet. Once you have the settings configured as desired, click OK to save the settings.
