VMware View Admins:

Do you include the SEP firewall on your VMware View machines, or just the AV portion?

I've always installed all 3 components (AV, PTP, NTP) but of course every environment differs so you may want to test it out first to see what works for you. A few articles I keep handy:

You should include FW module in the SEP client, because there are no impressive performance impact after include the FW module.
