Applies To: Unified Access Gateway

This topic describes how to install the Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) endpoint components by using the Forefront UAG Endpoint Components Installer.

End users who do not have ActiveX download rights on Windows Internet Explorer, and are logged in with Power User or Administrator privileges, can use the Forefront UAG Endpoint Components Installer to install the endpoint components. End users who are logged in with Administrator privileges, can also use this method on browsers other than Internet Explorer to install the SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component.

In this mode, users can download an auto-install file onto their computer by using either an “installer” toolbar button or a link on the portal home page. They can then log out of the site and use this file to install the components in offline mode.

The following steps are required to install endpoint components in offline mode:

To allow client endpoints to use the Forefront UAG Client Components installer, you must add a link to the auto-install file on the portal home page, as described in Enabling the offline client components installer.

The following table lists the component groups that you can install using the Forefront UAG Client Components Installer.

Installation group Installs the following components:

Basic

Basic components: Endpoint Session Cleanup, Client Trace Utility, Endpoint Detection, SSL Application Tunneling ActiveX component.

Basic components and the SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component.

SocketForwarder

Basic components and the Socket Forwarding component.

All

Basic components, SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component, and the Socket Forwarding component.

SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component only, without the basic components.

noteNote:
If the installation detects that client components are already installed on the computer, it upgrades any of the components from previous versions, even if their installation is not enabled in the current installation configuration.

When using the toolbar, the “SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component only” installer is always downloaded on browsers other than Internet Explorer, such as Mozilla Firefox, to enable the SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) client to run via the SSL Application Tunneling Java applet.

After you have configured the Forefront UAG Endpoint Components Installer, end users can download the Installer onto their computer by using the installer button or link on the portal home page, as follows:

To install the Forefront UAG endpoint components via the Installer

  1. If the toolbar is used, on the portal home page, on the toolbar, click the Component Installer button.

    If the toolbar is not used, on the portal home page, click the link to the installer.

    The file that was defined during the configuration of the button or link is downloaded to the computer. When prompted, click Save.

  2. Log off from the portal using the site’s logout mechanism, and close all the browser windows that were opened through the portal.

    For example, in sites that use the Forefront UAG toolbar, click the Log Off button to log off from the portal.

  3. Run the downloaded file.

    The Forefront UAG Endpoint Components Installation Wizard opens.

  4. Follow the instructions to complete the wizard, and install the components on the computer.
