The installation of Connection Manager PRO is easy and
intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them. During the
installation process you are give these options:
Automatically generate profiles from existing network connections
Import profiles from a file
Create new profile with wizard
I choose the "Automatically generate profiles from existing network
When you start Connection Manager PRO you are told it is a 14 day evaluation
version. Fair enough.
The first time that I started Connection Manager PRO with the above option I got
The profile file data are invalid.
I then pushed the button with the head and the question mark on it that the tool
Identify the best profile matching current configuration.
Connection Manager PRO then searched my laptop's network connections. It found
my Ethernet adapter and offered to create a profile based on that. Good choice
since that is how the laptop was then connected to the internet. It then went
into the Connection Manager PRO Profile Wizard. I hit next and this screen
I named this Local Ethernet, you then can pick which Workgroup you want this
profile in. You can then select which printer if any that you want assigned to
this profile, then you can select which, if any, email account you want to use
with this profile. You can then setup a VPN (Virtual Private Network)
I then disconnected from that profile and plugged in my wireless PCMCIA network
card, and it found the access point and I could easily setup a profile for it.
I hope that you have gotten the point. With Connection Manager PRO, it's
profiles and Wizards, you are going to be able to effortlessly use your laptop
at home, at the office on the road.
In conclusion I really like Connection Manager PRO and can highly recommend it
Try It! Buy It!
