Selecting a TCP/IP port
When you are configuring TCP/IP connections, TCP Splitter allows you to choose any TCP/IP port number. The range of possible port numbers is from 1 to 65,535. Please note that port numbers from 1 to 1000 may be used by the operating system or system tools. But you can freely use any TCP/IP port numbers starting from 1001. We recommend assigning port numbers greater than 1000.
Keep in mind that even if you select a port, it can be used by other applications, too. But two applications cannot simultaneously use the same port. Even if the port that you selected when configuring TCP Splitter was free at the moment, that does not guarantee that it will not be used later by another application.
If you find out that another application uses “your” TCP/IP port, just change the port number.
