To configure a Network Agent installation package:

  1. In the Remote installation folder of the console tree, select the Installation packages subfolder.

    The Remote installation folder is a subfolder of the Advanced folder by default.

  2. In the context menu of the Network Agent installation package, select Properties.

The Network Agent installation package properties window opens.

General

The General section displays general information about the installation package:

  • Installation package name
  • Name and version of the application for which the installation package has been created
  • Installation package size
  • Installation package creation date
  • Path to the installation package folder

Settings

This section presents the settings required to ensure proper functioning of Network Agent immediately after it is installed. The settings in this section are available only on devices running Windows.

In the Destination folder group of settings, you can select the client device folder in which Network Agent will be installed.

  • Install in default folder
  • Install in specified folder

In the following group of settings, you can set a password for the Network Agent remote uninstallation task:

  • Use uninstallation password
  • Status
  • Protect Network Agent service against unauthorized removal or termination, and prevent changes to the settings
  • Automatically install applicable updates and patches for components that have the Undefined status

Connection

In this section, you can configure connection of Network Agent to the Administration Server. To establish a connection, you can use the SSL or UDP protocol. For configuring the connection, specify the following settings:

  • Administration Server
  • Port
  • SSL port
  • Use Server certificate

  • Use UDP port
  • UDP port number
  • Open Network Agent ports in Microsoft Windows Firewall

Advanced

In the Advanced section, you can configure how to use the connection gateway. For this purpose, you can do the following:

  • Use Network Agent as a connection gateway in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) to connect to Administration Server, communicate with it, and keep data on the Network Agent safe during data transmission.
  • Connect to Administration Server by using a connection gateway to reduce the number of connections to the Administration Server. In this case, enter the address of the device that will act as the connection gateway in the Connection gateway address field.
  • Configure the connection for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) if your network includes virtual machines. For this purpose, do the following:
    • Enable dynamic mode for VDI
    • Optimize settings for VDI

Tags

The Tags section displays a list of keywords (tags) that can be added to client devices after Network Agent installation. You can add and remove tags from the list, as well as rename them.

If the check box is selected next to a tag, this tag is automatically added to managed devices during Network Agent installation.

If the check box is cleared next to a tag, the tag will not automatically be added to managed devices during Network Agent installation. You can manually add this tag to devices.

When removing a tag from the list, it is automatically removed from all devices to which it was added.
