Special Applications

These ICS port mappings have been generously contributed by 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 to map.
  • Reboot your system.
NOTE! These mappings can be imported only by ICS Configuration V1.2 or higher.

However, the .ICS files are in plain-text format, so if you don’t have ICS Configuration, you can always open the .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!

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!
