This network diagram shows server placement and firewall configuration for the following operational scenario for Internet-based client management in Configuration Manager 2007:
- Scenario 3: A Configuration Manager 2007 site
that supports both Internet clients and intranet clients and spans
the perimeter network and intranet. All the Internet-based site
systems are in the perimeter network and accept connections for
clients connecting over the Internet. There is a second management
point (and second software update point and fallback status point,
as well as additional distribution points) and other site systems
that are in the intranet for clients connecting on the intranet.
The management point that supports Internet-based clients
communicates directly with the SQL server in the intranet.
To avoid in-bound connections from the Internet-based software update point to the active software update point, use the export and import method of synchronizing the software updates as described in the following topic: How to Synchronize Updates Using Export and Import.
