Posted by , Last modified by on 10 October 2013 01:16 PM
The Cipafilter Authentication Client can be easily deployed to your network clients as a Group Policy Object. This guide will walk you through creating such a policy in Active Directory. In order to deploy the Cipafilter Authentication Client, you will need to have the appropriate client msi downloaded. The client can be downloaded either from the Utilities menu on the Cipafilter web interface, or directly from http://downloads.cipafilter.com/client/.
1. From the Start Menu, open Group Policy Management. You can also access it from the Control Panel by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, clicking Administrative Tools, and then clicking Group Policy Management.
2. Descend into the Forest and find Group Policy Objects.
3. Right-click on Group Policy Objects and select New.
4. Assign a Name to the GPO. This can be anything you like, but should be easily identifiable as the policy associated with the Cipafilter Auth Client. Do not select anything for the Source Starter GPO.
5. Right-click the newly-created GPO and select Edit to enter the Group Policy Management Editor. Descend into the Software Settings submenu of the newly-created GPO's Computer Configuration Policies menu.
6. Right-click Software Installation and select New -> Package.
7. Select and Open the cipaauthclient msi that you intend to associate with this GPO. The client can be downloaded from either the Cipafilter web interface or http://downloads.cipafilter.com/client/.
8. Be sure that you are putting the cipaauthclient in a Share. Every user must have read access. Please note that you might experience a problem if you use NETLOGON as your share owing to timing issues that may result in some of the files placed there being inaccessible.
9. When prompted for Deployment Method, select Assigned.
10. Your Cipafilter Auth Client is now ready to be pushed out as a GPO.
