Clients view

The Clients tab lists the various types of clients under five top-level nodes:

  • All ManagementServers: Windows, Linux, Mac and Android clients.
  • Exchange: Clients with the MailSecurity for Exchange plugin.
  • Sendmail/Postfix: Linux clients with the Sendmail/Postfix module.
  • Squid: Linux clients with the Squid module.
  • iOS Mobile Device Management: iOS clients.

Before clients can be managed, they need to be added to the Clients tab and deployed. The procedure depends on the type of client, the network size and the configuration:

The following types of icons are shown on the Clients tab:

  • Top-level node
  • ManagementServer
  • Group
  • Group (Active Directory link)
  • Client
  • Client (disabled)
  • Laptop client
  • Mobile client
  • Linux server
  • Linux client
  • MailSecurity for Exchange client
  • Non-selectable devices: Devices like network printers fall under this category.

When a client, group or ManagementServer is selected, the corresponding client modules are displayed as tabs in the module area. Depending on the type of node you select, different modules are available. For example, when you select a desktop client, the tab Client settings will be enabled. For Android clients, on the other hand, you get access to the Android settings tab.

Client settings can be imported and exported. Right-click on a client and choose Export settings to export settings from the Client settings and PolicyManager modules to a .dbdat file. To import settings, select a client or group, choose Import settings and select the scope and the settings file.
