Symantec Altiris - Local and public IP
Posted on 2012-04-12
There is a single Symantec Altiris server serving a single location office. Workstations connect to the Altiris server on the LAN using a local IP.
They would like it configured such that workstations connected to the LAN continue to connect on the local IP, but that when employees are travelling; their laptop workstations will connect to the Altiris server on our of their public IP's.
My question is:
How can we configure the Altiris Clients to look at the local Altiris Server IP first, and when that can't be found (i.e. when out of the office) it tries to connect to the Altiris server on the public IP? (hopefully this change can be pushed out by the Altiris server, rather than manually making a change on every workstation)
I understand it will mean making changes at firewall level to route the traffic accordingly, and that is fine. My question is purely about the Alitiris client configuration.
