Updated: March 29, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012

You can use the NAP Client Configuration snap-in to configure the Network Access Protection (NAP) Status user interface that appears on a client computer. The NAP Status user interface consists of one dialog box and provides information about the NAP agents that are enabled on the computer, network enforcement status, and remediation status.

By default, the NAP dialog box contains no branding information. Adding branding information is optional.

You should customize the NAP user interface when:

  • You want users to have a clear understanding that their network access is being controlled by your organization.

  • You want to provide contact information for your IT department so that users can get assistance when a computer has limited network access.

You can customize the following user interface elements:
