Client Connectivity Enhancements in PivotTable Service
Enhancements to PivotTable® Service provide new connection options and support new cube and security features introduced in this release of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Analysis Services. Additional new functionality in PivotTable Service can be used by client applications when connected to an Analysis server or when working offline.

Client applications can communicate with the Analysis server through Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) using HTTP or HTTPS. Third-party security providers can also be used.
