Use the Internet tab of the Configuration Manager 2007 Configuration Manager Properties dialog box to specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the management point that is configured to accept client connections across the Internet.
Additionally, if your computer uses a proxy server with user authentication to access the Internet, specify the proxy server details. If your computer uses a proxy server without user authentication, and the proxy server details are specified in the default Web browser, you do not need to specify the proxy server settings here.
The Internet tab does not display if the client is communicating in mixed mode. Internet-based client management requires that clients connect to their assigned site using native mode communication.
|Settings on this tab can be configured only by a user with administrative rights. Configured settings might not be visible to low-rights users.|
This tab contains the following elements:
- Internet based management point (FQDN):
- Specifies the fully qualified domain name of the management
point (or the network load balanced management point) that is
configured to accept client connections over the Internet. This is
required if the computer is managed over the Internet.
Note If you configure this option, or remove the value for this option so that no Internet-based management point is specified, the ConfigMgr connection type displayed on the General tab will not update until the client is restartedAdditionally, if you remove this option when the client is on the Internet, you must restart the client (SMS Agent Host) or restart the computer before the client will communicate with its default management point on the intranet.
- Proxy server
- Specifies the name of the proxy server to use for Internet
access. Specify a fully qualified domain name, a short name, or an
IP address.If you are using an IP address, both IPv4 and IPv6
formats are supported.Examples:
- Proxy server port: (HTTP and HTTPS)
- Specifies the port to use to connect to the proxy server for
Internet access, with a number between 1 and 65535.Although the
same port number is used for both HTTP and HTTPS connections, most
proxy servers will be able to automatically determine the different
ports to use for outbound Internet connections. However, if you
must specify separate port numbers for HTTP and HTTPs, use
alternative configuration methods such as the advanced proxy server
settings in Windows Internet Explorer.Examples:
- Proxy server user name
- Specifies the Microsoft Windows user name for authentication if
the proxy server is configured to authenticate users for Internet
Note Specifying the user name in the format of a universal principle name (UPN) is not supported.
- Proxy server password
- Specifies the password associated with the specified Proxy server user name to complete authentication for Internet access.
