The Multi-ICE hardware was designed only with a parallel port as the host PC interface. The Multi-ICE Server software is only able to access a parallel port on the 'legacy' addresses of 0x278 or 0x378:
Since Multi-ICE was only designed to work in the above scenario, we cannot provide assistance or support for any other configuration. Multi-ICE is a mature product and no further updates or revisions to the hardware interfaces or software are planned. It however continues to be available until retired for those developers continuing to use host platforms fitted with parallel ports with ADS, TAPOp or other RDI compatible tools.
Our next generation ICE unit - RealView ICE has USB and Ethernet connectivity built in. This is the recommended upgrade path and gives support for all the latest ARM processors. Multi-ICE only supports cores up to ARM10.
It might be possible to find a PCI parallel port card or USB to parallel port converter which allows mapping of the new parallel port onto the legacy addresses. If such a device can be installed, there is a chance that it might work with Multi-ICE Server. Note that such a set-up is unsupported and untested by ARM. Please do not ask ARM for assistance in getting such a set-up to work.
