Notes

  • 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.

  • Java client components cannot be installed using offline installation.

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

  • In Forefront UAG, the initial installation of the Endpoint Detection Java applet and the Endpoint Session Cleanup Java applet require administrator privileges on the client endpoint.

  • There are no specific requirements for the Forefront UAG Client Trace and Socket Forwarding Helper components.

  • Although browsers other than those in the table above may be functional for site access, for full feature functionality use only the recommended browsers.
