Connection Manager (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


Connection Manager in Windows Embedded CE 6.0 establishes and manages network connections for a Windows Embedded CE powered device. A device can access data networks, such as the Internet, by using several types of connections. Connection Manager handles the following types of connections; ActiveSync Desktop Pass-through (DTPT), Bluetooth Dial-up Networking (DUN), general packet radio service (GPRS), and wireless LAN (WLAN) connections.

An application requests a network connection from Connection Manager. Then Connection Manager chooses the optimal network-connection and handles all the details of connecting to the network for the application.
