Before you run the Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK) wizard, you should plan and develop the Connection Manager custom elements that you want in your client dialer. Then, simply run the CMAK wizard, answering the questions and providing the information about your custom elements. The CMAK wizard then builds a service profile, which is a set of files which you distribute to your users so that they can easily install and run your custom version of Connection Manager.
The CMAK wizard and this documentation is designed for the network administrators, information officers, and other team members responsible for the design, development, testing, distribution, and support of connection software for the customers who connect to your Internet or network service.
About this documentation
The CMAK wizard provides defaults that support quick and easy creation of a basic Connection Manager service profile. If you want to use all of the defaults and do not want to take advantage of the many customizable elements, you probably do not need this documentation.
However, if you want a custom dialer that promotes your brand and supports more advanced functions, such as automatic phone book updates and support for virtual private networking, you need this documentation to help you effectively plan and implement your custom elements.
The information in this documentation is based on the assumption that you have already installed the CMAK software. For more information on evaluating Connection Manager, see the Microsoft Web site.
You can display this documentation directly from the CMAK wizard by clicking Help. When you click Help in a pane of the CMAK wizard, the Help topic associated with that specific pane appears.
