PSB Workstation / Client Security for Windows: does Internet Shield adjust to Network Location?

Hello

 

Vista/Win7 have the great feature of Network Location, eg. a different filewall ruleset kicks in depending on what type of network the computer is connected to (Public/Home/Work/Domain).

 

Is there a possibility to have PSB Workstation / Client Security follow this network location so that Internet Shield automatically ajust the profile?

 

Best

Hi,

 

Client Security can be configured to change the Firewall ruleset based on availability of defined networkservers and settings.

 

PSB does not have that feature yet, So I would recommend to use the tightest ruleset possible. In any case inbound traffic should not be needed, so Laptop or Office is a good choice. Propper training for the user explaining the needs should be part of the setup.
