SFTP "Host" field limited to 15 characters?

I’m on 6.1.0. I’m trying to add an X12 Partner with SFTP credentials, but the interface field for “Host” is limiting me to 15 characters. Any one else have this problem? If so, what is the workaround?

Haven’t tried it, but you may have to get the IP address of the host and use that.

Looks like we have to change the maxlength property here.

interim solution: open a terminal window and ping your X12 Partner SFTP host and you will get the the numerical IP address in response:

PS C:\Users\msarn> ping mftgateway.changehealthcare.com
