Connection Manager Runtime

The Connection Manager Runtime component, along with the Connection Manager Administration Kit and Connection Point Services, are a family of products which enable a network administrator to create, distribute, and update preconfigured dial-up and Virtual Private Network (VPN) remote access connections. The managed connection can be distributed as a self-installing executable file, called a service profile, which is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows.

This component is a managed remote access client. Its behavior is controlled by the settings and custom actions defined in the service profile.
