Unlocking user interface settings on the client

You can configure user interface settings on the client if you do either of the following tasks:

  • Set the client's user control level to server control.

  • Set the client's user control level to mixed control and set the parent feature on the Client/Server Control Settings tab to Server.

    For example, you can set the Show/Hide notification area icon option to Client. The notification area icon appears on the client and the user can choose to show or hide the icon. If you set the Show/Hide notification area icon option to Server, you can choose whether to display the notification area icon on the client.

Note:

Most of these settings apply to the Windows client only. You can configure a few options on the Mac client in server control only.

To configure user interface settings in mixed control

  1. Click Clients > Policies tab.

    See Locking and unlocking settings by changing the user control level.

  2. In the Client User Interface Control Settings for location name dialog box, next to Mixed control, click Customize.

  3. In the Client User Interface Mixed Control Settings dialog box, on the Client/Server Control Settings tab, do one of the following actions:

    • Lock an option so that you can configure it only from the server. For the option you want to lock, click Server.

      Any Virus and Spyware Protection settings that you set to Server here override the settings on the client.

    • Unlock an option so that the user can configure it on the client. For the option you want, click Client. Client is selected by default for all settings except the virus and spyware settings.

  4. For some of the options that you set to Server, click the Client User Interface Settings tab to configure them:

    For information on where in the console you configure the remaining options that you set to Server, click Help. For example, to enable firewall settings and intrusion prevention settings, configure them in the Firewall policy and Intrusion Prevention policy.

    See Automatically allowing communications for essential network services.

    See Detecting potential attacks and spoofing attempts.

    See Enabling or disabling network intrusion prevention or browser intrusion prevention.

  5. On the Client User Interface Settings tab, check the option's check box so that the option is available on the client.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Click OK.

To configure user interface settings in server control

  1. Change the user control level to server control.

    See Locking and unlocking settings by changing the user control level.

  2. In the Client User Interface Settings dialog box, check the options that you want to appear on the client.

  3. Click OK.

  4. Click OK.
