You can use Connection Manager to connect to remote networks by using profiles configured and provided by your network administrator. Most of the required configuration that you need to connect is contained in the profile; you supply your network credentials. Connection Manager also supports virtual private network (VPN) connections over the Internet by using your broadband network connection or a dial-up modem. For dial-up users, the administrator can provide a phone book with a list of available numbers, allowing you to simply select the best phone number for your current location.

For more information about Connection Manager, the Connection Manager Administration Kit, or the Connection Point Services phone book service, see Resources for Connection Manager.
