If a Configuration Manager 2007 fallback status point will support Internet-based clients, verify that it will accept client connections from the Internet and configure throttling for processing state messages from clients.

Unlike the other site systems that support Internet-based client management, you cannot configure the Allowed client connections option because the fallback status point uses unauthenticated client connections. When the site is in native mode and the site system server configured for the fallback status point is configured with an Internet fully qualified domain name (FQDN), the option Allow both intranet and Internet client connections is automatically configured. It is the server placement and client configuration of assigning the fallback status point that determines whether clients on the intranet or the Internet can connect to the fallback status point.

Use the following procedure to verify that the fallback status point can accept connections from the Internet, and configure throttling options.

To configure the fallback status point configuration for Internet-based client connections

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Site Systems.

  2. Expand the site system server with the fallback status point role installed.

  3. In the results pane, right-click ConfigMgr fallback status point, and then click Properties.

  4. On the General tab, confirmed that the option Allowed client connections displays Allow both intranet and Internet client connections.

    If the option displays Allow intranet-only connections, confirm that the site is in native mode and that an Internet fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is specified for this site system server. See How to Configure the Internet FQDN of Site Systems that Support Internet-Based Client Management.

  5. Specify the value for Number of messages and modify this if required.

  6. Specify the value for Throttle interval (in seconds) and modify this if required.

  7. Click OK.
