This topic describes how to prepare Forefront TMG as a Remote Access Quarantine Agent (RQS) listener. You can do this by running the Remote Access Quarantine Tool. The tool is a script that creates an access rule allowing communication on the RQS port (7250) from the VPN Clients and Quarantined VPN Clients networks to the Local Host network. This access rule enables Forefront TMG to receive notice that the client has met the connection requirements.

To configure Forefront TMG as an RQS listener

  1. Download the tool from the Microsoft Technet Web site (

  2. Right-click the Command Prompt icon, and then select Run as administrator.

  3. From the command prompt, type cscript ConfigureRqs.vbs /install <AllowedSet>.

    • Include the script's full path.

    • < AllowedSet> is the key that clients should send when they meet the requirements to leave quarantine.

Next Steps

After running the tool, you will need to create a Connection Manager profile. For more information, go to Microsoft TechNet library (
