What is Access Connections?
Access Connections is a connectivity-assistant program for your ThinkPad or 3000 Family notebook computer. With Access Connections, you can quickly switch network settings and Internet settings by selecting a location profile.

Each location profile stores all of the network and Internet configuration settings that are needed to connect to a network infrastructure from a specific location such as home or work. The network connection can be made using a modem, a wired network adapter (Ethernet or Token Ring), a Broadband device (DSL, cable modem, or ISDN), or a wireless network adapter. Virtual Private Networking (VPN) connections also are supported.

By switching among location profiles as you move your computer from place to place, you can quickly and easily connect to a network without manually reconfiguring your settings or restarting your computer. Access Connections also allows you to view and connect to Bluetooth devices and set Bluetooth security options.

How to deploy Access Connections Profiles
Access Connections is able to import and export location profiles for the wireless adapter. This feature does not export the wireless security configuration and all profile settings. However, you can download and install the optional profile-deployment feature, which enables Access Connections to export wireless security configurations (including static WEP, password, and so on) and all profile settings. Download the Access Connections Deployment Guide to learn more about the Access Connections location profile-deployment feature.
