Hi! there,

I have 2 sites with no SMS distributioin points installed. I am looking for a solution to make the clients on these sites download the package from remote distribution points instead of I doing manual install of these applications. How can I do That and if that is possible please let me know? I do have the subnet of these 2 sites but do not know how to add them to the SMS server console?

Thanks,

Depeding on the settings in the package and the settings on the DP's this should work.

The client first checks the network connection, if its "Fast and reliable" it checks for local DP's. If none is presents in looks for remote DP's with the package on it. If the other DP's you have arent configured as protected DP the client should be able to download the package from one of them.
