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

following url will guide you to configure multipathing via cli

see my EE Article, which shows you how to setup Multipathing (there is no GUI for 4.x)
