I've had a few questions recently about managing clients that either roam off of the internal network or clients that never connect to the local network at all so I thought I would post a heads up about a TechCenter article that has some great information and examples on how you can do just that.
The article includes example scenarios of how Internet-based client management in Configuration Manager 2007 can be implemented to solve the following business requirements:
- Continue to Manage Laptops that Regularly Move out of the Intranet and on to the Internet
- Manage Home Computers that Never Connect to the Intranet
- Support Internet-Based Clients and Intranet Clients in the Intranet on the Same Site System Server
