Be famous!  Help your fellow ICSers!

Please send us your mappings and we'll make them available for download, with credit to you, of course!

NOTE: ICS Config contains a Notes feature that allows you to describe a mapping.  If you contribute a mapping, it would be helpful if you could write some information about the mapping such as:

  • what the mapping does

  • whether is works for all ICS clients simultaneously or just one at a time

  • what further settings are required (if any) in the associated application.

This information will help others to successfully use your mapping. Thanks! Earthweb HardwareCentral earthwebdeveloper CrossNodes Datamation
