You can create an unattended installation to deploy the Connect Filter for Windows Client out to. This section only provides guidance for the Connect Filter for Windows Client.
Create a script that includes the following command line:
msiexec /i "path_to_installer.msi" HOSTDATA="host" PORTDATA="port" FAILMODE="Open / Close" PASSWORD="Uninstall_password / blank / omit" /quiet
|Open||Continue to requested sites without filtering||Whenever the Connect Filter client is unable to connect to the Smoothwall Filter, access to requested sites is allowed on this device. Filtering policies are not applied, including any block policies. This option is suitable for corporate organizations where access to company-specific websites is more important than preventing access to blocked sites.|
|Close||Block access to requested sites||Whenever the Connect Filter client is unable to connect to the Smoothwall Filter, access to requested sites are blocked on this device. If a captive user portal is used, access to that user portal is granted, but after that, all other web requests are blocked. This option is suitable for educational organizations where there's a higher risk of users requesting blocked sites.|
When the installation completes, the Connect Filter system tray icon is displayed.
msiexec /i "\\mynetworkdrive\downloads\SWCInstall30.msi" HOSTDATA="mysmoothwall.com" PORTDATA="443" FAILMODE="Close" PASSWORD="" /quiet
