Possible to change the interface name of appliance?

the appliance is running on linux and accessible via http,telnet,etc.
When I do start-shell, I can access to its filesystem.
I am trying to change the interface name, currently is input1 to port-1.
It is not possible to change in WebGui or its CLI.
Possible to access its filesystem and change the interface name??

Nobody here can tell you.

Why? Because we aren't mind readers.

Try posting some useful information such as the name/type of appliance.

I'd think that the owners manual would provide enough information. I'd assume that the basic steps would be similar to what one might do in a Cisco switch. In this you may have to access telnet or ssh command line and modify the "software it is running" more than looking at it from a linux sort of command I'd think. I guess there may be an alias for the ports. Can try looking at ifconfig -a maybe.
