FPCClientSettingsSection Object

The FPCClientSettingsSection object contains a section of Firewall client settings for a specific client application. The entries in a Firewall client settings section are defined as {key, value} pairs. Each entry is created by setting the value for a specified key using the Value property.

When the Firewall Client software is installed, the Firewall client settings sections are provided to the Firewall Client Agent service (FwcAgent) on Firewall clients together with the name or IP address of the Forefront TMG computer or array to use, the set of IP address ranges that are included in the local network (the local address table or LAT), the automatic discovery settings for Web browsers, and the name or IP address of the Web proxy that Web browsers are to use. These settings are updated each time that a client computer is restarted and every six hours after an initial refresh is made.

Additional configuration options are set and stored locally on Firewall clients in configuration files. For more information about the Firewall client configuration files, see the Forefront TMG product documentation.

This object is an element of an FPCClientConfigSettings collection. The AddSection method can be used to create a new FPCClientSettingsSection object in the collection.
