Before starting deployment of Kaspersky applications on a network, you must specify the installation settings, that is, those defined during the application installation. When installing Network Agent, you should specify, at a minimum, an address for connection to the Administration Server and the proxy settings; some advanced settings may also be required. Depending on the installation method that you have selected, you can define settings in different ways. In the simplest case (manual interactive installation on a selected device), all relevant settings can be defined through the user interface of the Installer, so, in some cases, initial deployment can even be performed by sending users a link to the Network Agent distribution package together with the settings (Administration Server address, etc.) that the user must enter in the Installer interface.
This method is not recommended for use since it is inconvenient for users, entailing a high risk of errors when defining settings manually; it is also non-usable with silent installation of applications on device groups. In general, the administrator must specify values for settings in centralized mode; those values can subsequently be used for creation of stand-alone packages. Stand-alone packages are self-extracting archives that contain distribution packages with settings defined by the administrator. Stand-alone packages can be located on resources that allow both downloading by end users (for example, on Kaspersky Security Center Web Server) and silent installation on selected networked devices.
