Practically Networked visitors.
All you need to do to use them is:
click on a link to download the map file
open ICS Configuration
Import the mapping (you can do this by double
clicking on the map file if you have V1.2 or greater)
Use ICS Configuration to change the mapping
Target to the IP address of the computer that you want
Reboot your system.
These mappings can be imported only by ICS Configuration V1.2
However, the .ICS files are in plain-text format,

.ICS file with Notepad, read the information in the file, and
set the mapping manually. Or make things easy on yourself...
just download ICS Configuration!
