Clients Connecting over VPN Cannot Install Software Updates or Run Advertisements
 

Solution

There are two possible solutions to this scenario. Select the solution that best meets your business requirements:

  • If the VPN connection is fast and reliable enough that you want these clients to be considered as if they are connected directly to the intranet at their assigned site, configure a fast boundary. This will help ensure that they can always install advertisements and software update deployments available at their assigned site when they are connected over the VPN. Consult the VPN administrator to obtain a list of possible addresses for clients when they connect over the VPN, and use this information to create a fast network boundary with these addresses. Make sure that you are informed of any VPN scope changes so that you can modify the associated boundary information.
  • If the VPN connection is not fast or reliable but selected software update deployments and advertisements are critical for VPN clients, reconfigure the software update deployments and advertisements. Configure them with the option to download content and run locally instead of the default option to not install when clients are connected within a slow network boundary. However, this can result in other clients also installing this content when they are roaming to another site if they fall back to asking their default management point for content.
