I'm guessing they are talking about filters, to prevent the custmoer
from just getting around the proxy server. So you are probably
looking for Framed-Filter. Does BESS comes with any documentation
pertaining to this?

When you are searching both the MBR and service, the service information
is displayed in the results. Therefore, you need to change the SERVICE
information as well as the MBR information. Edit the service and go to
the personal tab. Change that name as well.
