File extension .CNS
|Windows 2000 Client Connection Manager Export Format
The .CNS file extension stands for a Windows 2000 Client Network Settings Export file. It is a data file type created and used by the Microsoft Windows Operating System's Client Connection Manager utility. This utility is used to facilitate connections between local networks in either an intranet or an extranet environment.
The .CNS file is made up of several configuration components. Included in the configuration are the user name and password for connection authentication, as well as any additional server settings, bandwidth settings, and route settings for the network. It also records various settings for transport protocol layers such as TCP/IP, NetBEUI, and IPX/SPX.
The .CNS file is composed of a series of components in a structured outline such as the root element with its attributes, followed by the server and transport connection elements which contain their own attributes. The transport connection element includes IP address information as well as subnet masks associated with the proper network protocol. Once all the information is recorded in the file it may then be used with other Windows operating systems, including Microsoft Windows 95, 98, 2000, and NT to make a secure connection with remote networks.
Other File Formats
Other similar file extensions related to configuring network connections are: .NCF, .CFG, .INI, and .DAT. These can all be created by and used within the Windows 2000 Operating system and other programs that are designed to configure network connections.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .CNS) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .CNS extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .CNS file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .CNS extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .CNS extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .CNS file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .CNS file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .CNS file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .CNS file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .CNS file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
