Visio 2013 lines with two text boxes

Is there a way to have a text box at each end of a line in visio 2013 that will stay with the line when moved?  This is on a network diagram and I would like to have the Interface port on each end of an connecting line.  

So IE

<--Gi1/1------------------Fa0/1-->
or
    Gi1/1                       Fa0/1
<------------------------------------>

If I move just one end I would like the text box to follow.

Thanks

Select the line, and the text boxes and right click > Shape > Group

Or

When creating lines, drag connection point over the center of a rectangle tool box and it should link it automatically so that when you move the box it moves that end of the line. This would be better so each end is independent. You can type inside the rectangle tool box.

I may be wrong, but I think the author was asking about how to have two text boxes on a single line.

Correct, I'm looking for a total of 2 text boxes per line giving me one on each end.  I did try creating a text box and grouping it to the line.  If you move the shape, the connected line moves but not the text boxes.  The line(s) will be connected to shapes.

So something like

(shape)<--Text------------------Text-->(shape)

or
               Text                           Text
(shape)<---------------------------------->(shape)
