MultiPoint Server enables multiple stations to be connected to one computer. Multiple users can then share one computer at the same time. Each station consists of a station hub, monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

MultiPoint Server includes the MultiPoint Manager application, which helps you, as an administrative user, to monitor and manage MultiPoint Server stations. This Help file describes many of the tasks that you can perform in MultiPoint Manager, such as how to manage MultiPoint Server stations by using MultiPoint Manager, and how to use MultiPoint Manager daily.

In addition to the information in this Help file, you have access to the Windows Server Help system. For more information about how to use Windows Help and Support, see the topic.

Throughout MultiPoint Manager Help, there are document conventions to help you distinguish formatting of text. For more information about document conventions, see the Documention Conventions In MultiPoint Manager Help topic.
