iRule Handsets v2.0

This tutorial covers how to create a new Handset in the iRule Builder. Handsets store a group of Panels and allow for a custom interface to be loaded to similar devices such as completely unique interface to two iPhones in the same home using the same iRule Builder License.

Both account types can add new Handsets.
