Distributing the Connection Manager Profile

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

After thoroughly testing the entire remote access solution, Contoso distributes the Connection Manager service profile Contoso.exe to users at the company. Contoso uses a combination of distribution methods: the service profile is made available for download from the company’s corporate network, and the service profile is preinstalled onto all new portable computers before distributing them.

The service profile can be downloaded from inside the corporate network and either installed on portable computers or saved to floppy disk and installed later on the user’s home computer.

After the user has Contoso.exe on their computer, the user installs and sets up Connection Manager by using the following procedure.

To install Contoso.exe

  1. Double-click Contoso.exe.

  2. Click Yes when prompted to install Remote access to Contoso.

  3. Click My use only to make the connection available to only the intended user and not all users of that computer. The user can also choose to add a shortcut to the connection on the desktop, and then click OK.

  4. After the installation is complete, the user selects a primary and backup phone number or chooses to connect over their existing Internet connection.

    Tip

    • The user can create additional settings for home, travel, or other locations. Users create these customized settings by using the New button on the General tab of the Remote access to Contoso Properties dialog box and access them by using the Use settings for list on the Remote access to Contoso dialog box.

To select a phone number

  1. Click Properties in the Remote access to Contoso dialog box.

  2. On the General tab of the Remote access to Contoso Properties dialog box, click Dial a phone number to connect.

  3. Click Phone Book to specify a phone number and a backup number.

To use an existing connection to the Internet

  1. Click Properties in the Remote access to Contoso dialog box.

  2. On the General tab of the Remote access to Contoso Properties dialog box, click I am already connected to the Internet.

  3. The user clicks OK to return to the Remote access to Contoso dialog box.

  4. Finally, the user enters their credentials and connects to the Contoso intranet.
