1 The following 10 questions test your knowledge of Internet-based client management in Configuration Manager Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

2 Question Is it true that not all Configuration Manager features are supported when clients are managed on the Internet? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

3 Question Is it true that not all Configuration Manager features are supported when clients are managed on the Internet? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Correct! Not all Configuration Manager 2007 features are appropriate for the Internet, so they are not supported when clients are managed on the Internet. The features that are not supported for Internet management typically rely on Active Directory Domain Services (which is not accessible from the Internet) or are not appropriate for a public network (such as network discovery and Wake On LAN). Features that are supported include software updates, software installation, collecting inventory and software metering data, and compliance information for desired configuration management.

5 Do you have to choose between managing a Configuration Manager 2007 client computer on the Internet or on the intranet? Question Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

6 Question Do you have to choose between managing a Configuration Manager 2007 client computer on the Internet or on the intranet? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Incorrect. A Configuration Manager client can be managed on both the Internet and on the intranet, which is ideal for laptop computers that connect to both types of networks. These computers detect which network they are on and change their behavior accordingly. However, you can install Configuration Manager 2007 clients for Internet-only client management if you are sure that you do not need to manage them on your intranet.

15 Question Is it a requirement of Internet-based client management in Configuration Manager that the Internet-based site systems are located in a perimeter network? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Incorrect. Internet-based client management supports a number of network scenarios that include all site systems located in the perimeter network, some site systems located in a perimeter network, and some site systems located in the intranet, and all site systems located in the intranet. For More Information: Supported Scenarios for Internet-Based Client Management

16 Question Is it a requirement of Internet-based client management in Configuration Manager that the Internet-based site systems are located in a perimeter network? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Correct! Internet-based client management supports a number of network scenarios that include all site systems located in the perimeter network, some site systems located in a perimeter network, and some site systems located in the intranet, and all site systems located in the intranet.

17 Can implementing Internet-based client management result in clients connecting to two different management points in a site? Question Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

18 Question Can implementing Internet-based client management result in clients connecting to two different management points in a site? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Correct! When the site supports both Internet client and intranet clients, you can deploy one management point for Internet clients that can be located in the perimeter network and a default management point for intranet clients that can be located in the intranet. This offers additional security for the intranet management point because it does not accept direct connections from the Internet. For More Information: Supported Scenarios for Internet-Based Client Management

19 Question Can implementing Internet-based client management result in clients connecting to two different management points in a site? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Incorrect. When the site supports both Internet client and intranet clients, you can deploy one management point for Internet clients that can be located in the perimeter network and a default management point for intranet clients that can be located in the intranet. This offers additional security for the intranet management point because it does not accept direct connections from the Internet.

20 Can the implementation of SSL to HTTP bridging on a proxy Web server that publishes your Internet-based site systems eliminate the requirement for PKI certificates on the Internet-based site systems? Question Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

21 Question Can the implementation of SSL to HTTP bridging on a proxy Web server that publishes your Internet-based site systems eliminate the requirement for PKI certificates on the Internet-based site systems? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Incorrect. Internet-based site systems (with the exception of the Internet-based fallback status point) require connections over SSL, and therefore always require PKI certificates. If you are using a proxy Web server to publish the Internet-based site systems, you can configure the proxy Web server for SSL to SSL bridging or SSL tunneling. SSL to SSL bridging is recommended, but you can also use SSL tunneling if your proxy Web server cannot support bridging.

23 Is HTTPS the only port configuration you might require on external firewalls for Internet-based client management traffic? Question Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz

24 Question Is HTTPS the only port configuration you might require on external firewalls for Internet-based client management traffic? Configuration Manager 2007 Internet-Based Client Management Quiz Incorrect. Most of the Internet-based client management traffic uses HTTPS, so external firewalls must be configured to allow HTTPS traffic from the Internet. However, if you are using an Internet-based fallback status point, which only accepts connections over HTTP, the external firewall must also be configured for HTTP.
