This form appears when you press CHANGE TCP port in the parent Transmission of Nmea 0183 Sentences form. You should enter the TCP port number that the multiplexer uses and its IP Address.

TCP is a connection protocol. This means that a connection between the client and the server must be established before any message is transmitted. Also, after the message is sent, the sender waits for a confirmation that the message was received without errors. That is the reason why TCP communication is not as fast as UDP communication. In the server-client model, the multiplexer is the server and the PC is the client. It is the client that establishes the connection with the server and, in order to do that, it needs to know the IP Address of the server. Of course, both should use the same port number.
