When you connect for the first time from a new location, Avanquest Connection Manager automatically selects the best available network. Connect quickly and easily to public WiFi hotspots in coffee shops or airports, in your hotel while travelling, when at home or in the office.
Avanquest Connection Manager detects your preferences for set up of printers, email, disk drives for each location, and saves them. When you come back to a location, with Avanquest Connection Manager, your default printer, email accounts, security settings, your web browser, and others, are automatically configured.
By memorizing preferred network connection settings, including internet, Virtual Private Network (VPN), email client, default printer and disk drives, laptop users can seamlessly transition from one network to the next without having to adjust settings or deal with annoying error messages.
In the office:
You are on a traditional LAN, using Outlook, a network HP printer, Internet Explorer, and a shared network drive.
You are now using a direct wired connection to your DSL broadband, Outlook Express, Mozilla Firefox and a USB connected Lexmark printer.
At the airport or the coffee shops:
You connect through an unsecured wireless connection with just normal Wi-Fi security to download you mail but that’s all.
At the hotel room:
You connect through the hotel internet system through either normal phone lines, ISDN or whatever, using a secure VPN back to your office, using a firewall to protect your company assets.
For each new location or connection type, a PROFILE of the network, email, printer, etc. is saved.
