What is an .CMP file?

.CMP is Windows Connection Manager Profile

Settings file created using Connection Manager, a suite of software components that enables system administrators to setup Windows remote connection profiles; saves information such as the username, password, and the phone number to dial.

CMP files enable administrators to configure initial settings for a user's dial-up connection.

NOTE: The Connection Manager Administration Kit (CMAK) is the name of the Connection Manager tool used for setting up profiles.
