I have two registry Key's that I need to be able to import on remote machines that are outside of our network and not on our domain, but are managed by our core server.
Our configuration is that we have a core server inside the corporate network and are running the remote management gateway. We have 900 or so laptops that we distributed to properties which we own throughout the country for sales professionals. These laptops are configured to check in with the gateway appliance, this is working for remote control. (Thus far that is all we have used it for, to let the IT admins at our local properties control the machines they have been given and take it off of our hands at the main corporate office)
I have built a batch file and this is will work to alter the registry and I can push it out to machines within the local network.
For kicks and grins I tried to do a normal multicast to a test client on the outside and got this message: "No status was received. The Client may be cut off or multicast may not be installed"
When we bought LANDesk we were told that we would be able to use it for software distribution and patch distribution to these clients that are outside of the corporate network, but I have yet to figure out how to configure LANDesk to do this.
Thanks very much.
