The description of said CDS-24285
Currently, Scripts can set gateway and address for Devices, but the Gateway can only set via GUID.
We could improve by allowing to set a gateway via Name, to allow scripts to add and remove gateways, and to trigger network scans.
Also, connecting to runtimes via IP address etc. would be useful.
So, yes, connecting to the runtime via IP should be implemented with this improvement.
