<p>If you are using multiple connections, e.g. a LocoNet Connection and a
MERG Connection, the Defaults pane lets you select which connection
you want to use for a particular purpose.</p>
<p>The Internal connection is the default connection, however, since this
is almost always undesirable, JMRI applications will notify you if the
Internal connection is the default for every purpose. To silence this
you want to use for a particular purpose. For example, you
can select one connection (LocoNet in the figure) for train throttles
and consists,
while using a different one (SPROG in the figure) for the
service mode programming track.</p>
<p>The Internal connection can be selected as a default.
To avoid a common mis-configuration, JMRI applications will notify you if the
Internal connection is selected across all the columns.
If you choose to use an all-Internal set of defaults and want to silence this
notification, edit the profile properties, setting the property
<code>jmri-managers.allInternalDefaults</code> to <em>true</em>.</p>
