enable profile page creation and specify the host site URL.

and enable profile page creation, you can create a new profile page for a particular ECT, and each ECT will then have
a unique profile page or will upgrade existing profile pages from MOSS 2007. Default action links will be created for
these profile pages. For new profile pages, the default action is View Profile. For upgrades, a new action—View Profile
(SharePoint 2007)—is created. If you re-create a profile page, it overwrites a previous version of the same file.

use to connect with external systems.
