5.4.2 Quick setup for location profile creation
To simplify the process of creating location profiles, IBM Access Connections
provides the Quick Setup option in the Choose Your Connection Type window
(refer to Figure 5-2 on page 277). This option captures the current connection
information and imports it into the newly created IBM Access Connections
location profile. This feature reduces the number of steps from ten to three for
creating a new location profile.
1. To begin, connect to the network that you wish to use in IBM Access
Connections.
2. Then open IBM Access Connections. A window similar to Figure 5-19 on
