RE: automating firewall client installation

Hi Badri

 

If you don't use a Login Script, I do not believe that you have any
other alternatives, apart from using a software deployment tool such as
SMS or Unicenter TNG.

 

I use my login script to run the following command:

msiexec.exe /i \\<server>\mspclnt\ms_fwc.msi /q"

 

The reason that I don't just run the FW Client setup directly is because
it gets a bit confused sometimes and I like to remain in control of
exactly what is bing installed.

 

Cheers

William R.

Hi,

I want to deploy firewall client software in the desktops. Is there any
method that I could use to automate this? I know I could do this using
logon script but this is not a good solution. We have Win2k domain with
Win9x clients.

 

Thank you for your help.
