LinkCreate LinkCreate["name"] creates a MathLink link with the specified name for another program to connect to. LinkCreate picks an unused port on your computer system and creates a MathLink link on it. LinkCreate by default creates internet TCP links, with names of the form port@host. Ports are typically specified by numbers. LinkCreate returns a LinkObject. You can use LinkCreate and LinkConnect to set up peer-to-peer communication between two Mathematica processes. The option LinkProtocol specifies the underlying data transport protocol to use. LinkCreate internally calls a function analogous to the MLOpenArgv() function in the MathLink library. See the Mathematica book: Section 2.12.6. See also: LinkConnect, LinkLaunch, LinkClose.
