There is an UAG ActiveX though

Excerpt

Forefront UAG ActiveX client components are supported only on client endpoints running Windows operating systems with an Internet Explorer browser. For online installation, the browser must be configured to enable the download and running of signed ActiveX objects.

The Forefront UAG Component Manager ActiveX object installs the other client components. For initial online installation of Forefront UAG Component Manager, administrator privileges are required on the client endpoint.

For Java client components, Forefront UAG requires JRE version 1.5.

I am not picking up on the question. What EXACTLY are you looking to achieve? Direct Access via UAG? Access to a published app(s) via UAG? Are all other work station combination/types working ok and just Windows 7 devices failing?

What are you seeing in the TMG component realtime log monitor when any form of access is attempted on a Windows 7 machine?
How is this comparing with devices that work in regards to the same log?

Yes, everyone is working, it's just a few remote users with the home edition operating system.  When they use another OS with like professional they work fine.  I'm thinking there is a configuration that home version is missing or something else?

thanks for the clarification.

What are you using for authentication on the publishing side - i.e. the home edition cannot authenticate against the AD in regards to a computer account as the home edition doesn't support joining a domain. Are you using user or machine certificates?

E.g. A Forefront UAG DirectAccess client must be: Running Windows 7 Enterprise, or Windows 7 Ultimate. Joined to an Active Directory domain.

Or I mean, they don't need to be joined to the domain, these are people's home pc's.  They are just trying to login to the UAG Portal and use the published resources, like RDP, etc.

Rightfully the activex component need to be installed if you will to take a look at the Requirements. Minimally need the
SSL Network Tunneling (Network Connector) component.

I would agree - in fact the portal should prompt for the installation - but this would not be any different for a Windows 7 home/Windows 7 professional etc, i.e. the response should be the same....

okay, thanks, I would think home should work as well.  Where do you check to see what UAG is checking for in the remediation phase before the client connects?  Perhaps there is something that was setup there that is causing an issue?
