Remote Access Auto Connection Manager

Services As described by Microsoft, “The Remote Access Auto Connection Manager service maps and maintains network addresses to connection destinations. This allows a destination to be automatically dialed from a program or from the command prompt. A network address can be an Internet host name, an Internet Protocol (IP) address, or a NetBIOS server name.” Though this description doesn’t make it clear under which circumstances the service is required, it is set to manual by default, so it will only be called when required, and based on the number of Google hits surrounding startup issues, it may be required often for some users.

  1. I can’t BEAR it! I finally find a really great site which actually explains WHAT Vista services DO.. but to my horror, also find that it stops at “Remote Access Auto Connection Manager.”

    Is that it??? Does it just stop there??

    I’d rather find out that I’m an absolute half-wit, and have just missed the “Next Page” button or something equally obvious, than that it really does stop there.
    I do hope someone sees this and replies to it!

  2. If you’re a half-wit I must be the other half, ’cause I can’t find the ‘next page’ button either.

    Damn! The first half was good … was a bit spoilt by the sudden ending … some people say there’s a twist.

  3. If I ever got one of these connections to work using just Windows, I think I would pass out from shock. Luckily there are plenty of companies putting out quality remote access products that don’t require all kinds of workarounds and tweaks in order to use.

  4. The Windows program for remote connection is so convoluted, it makes me wonder why they include it in the OS package at all. I ended up buying remote access software from Proxy Networks to replace it.
