CM_VPNEntries Configuration Service Provider

Send Feedback

The CM_VPNEntries Configuration Service Provider configures the Virtual Private Network (VPN) entries on the device. Users can use VPN to connect to a corporate network using an Internet.

Note   This Configuration Service Provider is managed over the OMA Client Provisioning (formerly WAP) protocol.
Note   Access to this Configuration Service Provider is determined by Security roles. Because OEMs and Mobile Operators can selectively disallow access, ask them about the availability of this Configuration Service Provider. For more information about roles, see Security Roles and Default Roles for Configuration Service Providers.

The nocharacteristic tag will work on the top two levels to delete all, or specific, entries.

The following table shows the default settings. The default security role maps to each subnode unless specific permission is granted to the subnode.

The following image shows the Configuration Service Provider in tree format as used by OMA Client Provisioning.

Characteristics

<entryname>
The <entryname> characteristic is used as the name of the connection. Fields under this characteristic specify parameters for this connection.
Note   The system does not allow duplicate entry names among CM_VPNEntries, CM_PPPEntries, and CM_GPRSEntries.

Parameters

AltDnsAddr
This parameter is used in the <entryname> characteristic and is placed in the ipaddrDnsAlt member of the RASENTRY structure.
Note   Once configured, the AltDnsAddr parameter cannot be set to null by configuration with a blank string. The only way to change the setting is to pass in the value "0.0.0.0".

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
Label Alternate DNS address
AltWinsAddr
Used in the <entryname> characteristic and is placed in the ipaddrWinsAlt member of the RASENTRY structure. .

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
Label Alternate WINS address
AreaCode
Used in the <entryname> characteristic. This value specifies the area-code portion of the phone number. This value is placed in the szAreaCode member of the RASENTRY structure.
CountryCode
Used in the <entryname> characteristic. This value specifies the country-code portion of the phone number. This value is placed in the dwCountryCode member of the RASENTRY structure.
Desc.<langid>
Used in the <entryname> characteristic. A tag in the format of Desc.<langid> is used as the language-specific identifier for that entry. For example, if the field <parm name="Desc.0409" value="GPRS Connection" /> is set, "GPRS Connection" appears in the UI to identify this connection when the device is set to the English language (language ID 0409).

Descriptions for multiple languages may be provisioned using this mechanism, and the operating system automatically switches among them if the user changes language preferences on the device. If no <Desc> tag is provisioned for a specific language, the system defaults to the characteristic tag name used to create the entry.

DestId
Used in the <entryname> characteristic as a GUID that represents the unique ID of the network to which this entry connects. See the Connmgr.h header for predefined GUID values IID_DestNet*.

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
Label Connects to
DeviceName
Used in the <entryname> characteristic. This value specifies the local portion of the phone number. This value is placed in the szDeviceName member of the RASENTRY structure. DeviceName contains the name of a TAPI device to use with this phone-book entry, for example, "XYZ Corp 28800 External".

To enumerate the number of available RAS-capable devices, use the lineInitialize function.

For Smartphone 2002 devices, by default, this parameter contains the name of the cellular TAPI device (specified in Tsp.h) of "Cellular Line".

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
Label Device name
DeviceType
Used in the <entryname> characteristic. This value is placed in the ipaddrDns member of the RASENTRY structure The default value for this parameter is RASDT_Modem.

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
Label Device type
DeviceSpecificRAW
Used in the <entryname> characteristic to allow querying or setting the TAPI device-specific data structure associated with the RAS entry. This duplicates the functionality of the various XML tags under the <entryname>/DevSpecificCellular and <entryname>/DevSpecificUnimodem characteristics, and also allows the setting of the device-specific information for other non-standard TAPI service providers.

The string value is interpreted as a hexadecimal byte stream, for example the string "FFFFFFFF" sets the structure to a single DWORD with all bits set. The string should describe the entire data structure and cannot just set the initial section of it. The resulting structure is passed into the TAPI service provider through lineSetDevConfig each time the connection is brought up.

Note   Use this parameter with caution because it allows direct manipulation of the underlying data structures used by the TAPI service provider.

The following table shows the default settings.

Permissions Read/Write
Data type String
DialAsLocalCall
Used in the <entryname> characteristic to specify the setting of the RASEO_DialAsLocalCall member in the RASENTRY structure. Possible values are 0 or 1. For more information about RASENTRY and the use of this parameter, see MSDN.
Note   For cellular devices, this member is typically ignored, and the system is programmed to dial the full canonical number, for example, "+<country code><area code><local number>."

The following table shows the default settings.
