Hi Xia,

CSS, CSN and OSS all mean the same system, the OSS. CSN and CSS are names of SAP-internal servers that run OSS.

Dear Xia,

1 - SAPNET R/3 Frontend is the older way to access to SAP Support, it a frontend interface called from R/3 it self by a special transaction : OSS1. In this transaction are stored the connection parameters to access the SAP Online Support System (OSS), so the SAPNET R/3 Frontend is also called OSS. This will despear by april 2006 and be totally replcaed by SAP Marketplace(http://service.sap.com/).

CSS : are u asking about ORACLE CSS??? if so it's : Oracle Cluster Synchronization Service : it's the cluster manager for oracle release 10g

CNS : Change Notification Service , it seems to be a Financial Tool ( componant FS-TO)

OSS : Online Support System ( see 1-)

May this helps you,
