Lesson 8. Networking Configuration and T... > Creating and Choosing Locations

Creating and Choosing Locations

A location is a set of active network ports and configurations for the protocols on those ports. It is meant primarily as an organizational tool to manage connectivity.

From the Location submenu in the Apple menu, you can directly choose a location, and the network settings you have configured for that location will be activated. You can also use this submenu as an easy way to open Network preferences, where you can change configuration settings for the current location, and manage all of your configured Locations. The Automatic location is the default configuration that was created when the computer was originally set up.
