This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there a way to manually install the altiris agent on the client, rather than push the agent to the client?

You can pull the agent from the NS server via this URL:
You could e-mail your users with this URL and a set of instructions.
Alternatively, you can install the agent via aexnsc.exe.  You can find this on the server, and it's the same file that AltirisAgentDownload.aspx uses:
aexnsc.exe -s - a ns="" nsweb="" /s
You can find other switches here:
