Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

If the Configuration Manager 2007 management point will support Internet-based clients, you must configure the management point to accept connections from Internet-based clients.

To configure a management point for Internet-based client connections

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

  2. Expand the site system server that is configured with the management point role that will manage Internet-based clients.

  3. In the results pane, right-click ConfigMgr management point, and then select Properties.

  4. On the General tab, select one of the following options:

    • Allow Internet-only client connections: With this more secure option, the management point will accept only connections from clients using the Internet FQDN.

    • Allow both intranet and Internet client connections: With this less secure option, the management point will accept connections from clients using the Internet FQDN or the intranet FQDN.

    noteNote
    If these options are not available and the only option displayed is 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.

  5. Click OK.

    noteNote
    For more information about the options in this dialog box, see ConfigMgr Management Point Properties: General Tab.
