Overview: Managing Host Access IDs

Management & Control Services (MCS) provides IDs to presentations at run-time. An ID is connection data that is unique for an individual session with a host. If you use MCS to manage IDs, you can create a single presentation that can be used by multiple users to establish multiple sessions with a host, rather than having to create a separate presentation for each host connection.

When a user starts a presentation, the Presentation Builder Runtime Service gets an ID from MCS and uses the ID to connect to the host. MCS keeps track of (monitors) the IDs that are in use. If all the IDs assigned to a pool are in use, no other host sessions can be opened through that pool.
