dont see the network config tab on my iscsi software int in vmware esx 4.1

I don't see the network config tab when I right click on my iscsi software adapter so that I can setup the multipath network config
Why don't I see it and is there something I need to do?

iscsi multi pathing configuration can be done via cli in esx4.1. GUI is not available in 4.x versions
