What is Connection Point Services?
Connection Point Services was a component of Internet Connection Services for Microsoft Remote Access Service (RAS) that provided users with a central location for managing and distributing network access numbers.
Connection Point Services (CPS) will automatically check a subscriber’s phone book and download updates if required. CPS can also be used to merge a corporate phone book of network access numbers with phone books from an Internet service provider (ISP).
CPS has two components:
- Phone Book Service: Downloads a phone book by comparing the phone book on the subscriber’s computer with those in the CPS database. This ensures that subscribers always have an up-to-date directory of network access numbers.
- Phone Book Administrator: Creates new phone books or edits existing ones. You can create and maintain multiple phone books, both public and private, and post phone book information to the Phone Book Service.
