Just had to re-install SSDR and CAT assigned a COM49 port which N1MM can't find. How do I get it back to Com 4 where it used to be?
Thanks...

Can't edit com port number on VSP com ports, no option for that in DM.

Use this tool to remove reserved COM ports

PS. You can also right click on the CAT Remove button to expose the "Reset FlexVSP Ports" action.

This is the right thing to do.  Remove the reserved com ports (https://helpdesk.flexradio.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000504463-Removing-In-Use-Com-Ports-for-Availabl...)

The do a reset on the FlexVSP ports as Mark indicated.

Thanks, Mark & Tim. That worked, removed all those reserved ports. Rebooted and then I was able to set it to 5/15 which N1MM can see. Working great again. 
I remembered there was a trick to it last time I set it up but that was long ago and I couldn't remember the trick. 73...
