    A cable is connected to your local computer. This is the default.

    Host Name:
    This is the name or the IP address of the remote computer which is attached to the desired cable. Host Name is specified in the format hostname:port, where hostname is either the remote host name or its IP address, and port is the TCP port. If no port is specified, the default port value of 50001 will be used.
