Forefront TMG Client can be installed on client computers protected by Forefront TMG 2010. Forefront TMG Client provides HTTPS inspection notifications, automatic discovery, enhanced security, application support, and access control for client computers. It provides authentication for Winsock applications that use TCP and UDP, supports complex secondary protocols, and supplies user and application information to Forefront TMG 2010 logs.
When a client computer running Forefront TMG Client makes a request, the destination is evaluated by the Forefront TMG Client software, and external requests are directed to the Forefront TMG 2010 computer for handling. No specific routing infrastructure is required. Forefront TMG Client sends user information transparently with each request, enabling you to create a firewall policy on the Forefront TMG 2010 computer with rules that use the authentication credentials presented by the client. Forefront TMG 2010 allows you to configure automatic discovery for Forefront TMG Client computers, using: Active Directory, WPAD entry in DNS, or DHCP to obtain correct Web proxy settings for clients, depending on their location.
