Wireless Provisioning Services (WPS) documentation now available
Wireless Provisioning Services
Updated: August 18, 2004
Wireless Provisioning Services (WPS) enable the discovery of and connection
to wireless networks. WPS enhancements are included in Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 2 (SP2) and under consideration for Windows Server™ 2003
Service Pack 1 (SP1).
WPS extends the wireless client software included with Windows XP and the
Internet Authentication Service (IAS) included with Windows Server 2003 to
allow for a consistent and automated configuration process when connecting
to public wireless hotspots or private wireless networks that provide guest
access to the Internet.
The WPS APIs allow for the pre-provisioning of network information to
connect to these networks and the provisioning of network settings to
connect to private wireless networks.
To help driver developers who create network components that can take
advantage of WPS capabilities, Microsoft is providing a Driver Development
Kit (DDK) preview, including these components:
• WPS documentation preview from the Windows DDK
• Netprov.h header and related files
