The Extended Connection Preferences API provides customized control over the connection establishment process followed by the applications.
The Extended Connection Preferences API is used to control and customize the connection establishment behavior of applications. The API handles applications with special needs in connectivity accordingly. For example, connection to a specific SNAP or connection to a specific IAP so on. Many applications do not need a customized connection establishment process and hence, usage of this API is not needed by majority of applications.
The user of the API should link against extendedconnpref.lib and netmeta.lib and include the header file, extendedconnpref.h.
The API defines extended connection preferences as a set of parameters. The class that handles the preference parameters is described below:
The API provides the following key services:
Open a connection to a specific Service Network Access Point (SNAP) (By specifying Type)
Open a connection to a specific SNAP (By specifying the SNAP ID)
Open a connection to a specific Internet Access Point (IAP)
Open a connection by querying the connection method from the user
Open a connection without the discreet pop-ups
Open a connection without any queries
Disallow automatic switch to Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
Inform middleware that application handles contention
