This issue has been solved. See solution.


This is a two part question.

1.I created a setup.exe and distributed it to all my clients. The bosses want me to add Application and device control but it was not in the original Setup.exe. How do I add this feature on the clients?

2.How do I disable firewall by default? It is installed but I want to disbale it via policy.

The above article provides steps on how to change the feature sets of exisitng clients.

You can use this process to add the A&DC component to your clients.

While you could potentially, use this process to remove the firewall from your clients at the same time, I'd actually recommend leaving it in place, and disabling the firewall by withdrawing ( the Firewall policy from your clients.

Doing it this way ensures SEP's client firewall is ready to be switched on should you need it (new outbreak perhaps).

Thanks for the reply. I do not have firewal policy on my Locations but if I check the setting on th client firewall is marked as enabled. Is the setting incorrect?

You would have to enable the Firewall Policies to work correctly.

As Highlighted above, following the steps provided in the Article: TECH90936

would assist you with the same.

NOTE: To have the ADC working properly, you would need NTP enabled and working correctly.

A restart is required to install NTP drivers.

Hope that helps!!
