1.4.4. The portmap application

To support network connections, an additional application must be running on the Windows workstation that runs the Multi-ICE server. This application is called the portmapper, and allows software on other computers on the network to locate the Multi-ICE server.

The portmapper is normally started automatically by the Multi-ICE server. It runs in a minimized console window, and requires no intervention by you. You can change the Multi-ICE server settings to prevent the portmapper being started if you do not require network connections, or if you already have another portmapper running on your Windows workstation.
