This code from Set Up PIL Connectivity by Using target Package shows how to specify the connection between your development computer and target hardware. In the example, the target application runs on your development computer as a separate process and uses a TCP communication channel through localhost.

connection = target.create('TargetConnection');
connection.Name = 'Host Process Connection';
connection.Target = hostTarget;
connection.CommunicationChannel = target.create('TCPChannel');
connection.CommunicationChannel.Name = 'External Process TCPCommunicationChannel';
connection.CommunicationChannel.IPAddress = 'localhost';
connection.CommunicationChannel.Port = '0';
