Viewing the status of a connection

You can view the status of your Dynamic Connections so you track active connections and control network costs. You can also easily view detailed information about a connection.

Note: If you're waiting for a connection to be activated, use the Refresh icon () to refresh the status for your connections.

To view the status of a connection:

  1. Click Orders, click Other Ordering, then click Dynamic Connections.

    Control Center lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
