About client installation methods

After you install Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, you install the Symantec Endpoint Protection client with the Client Deployment Wizard.

Table: Client installation options displays the client installation methods that you can use.

Options

Description

Web Link and Email

Users receive an email message that contains a link to download and install the client software. The users then install the client software, so they must have local administrator rights to their computers.

You can install Windows, Mac, and Linux clients using this option.

See Installing clients with Web Link and Email.

Remote Push

Remote push installation pushes the client software to the computers that you specify. The installation begins automatically on the client computers. Remote push installation does not require the user to have local administrator rights to their computers.

You can install Windows and Mac clients using this option.

See Installing clients with Remote Push.

See Preparing Windows and Mac computers for remote deployment.

Save Package

This installation option creates an executable installation package that you save on the management server and then distribute to the client computers. The users then install the client software, so they must have local administrator rights to their computers.

You can install Windows, Mac, and Linux clients using this option.

See Installing clients with Save Package.

Before you run the Client Deployment Wizard, you review the installation options, optionally customize them, and then select those options during installation. Installation options include the protection technologies to install, the installation destination folder, and the restart behavior after installation.
