Microsoft TMG 2010 Client
We have just decided to make the move from Bloxx to Microsoft TMG and I have finished setting up the server.
I am now at the point of pushing out the TMG Client and have done this through Group Policy to a test virtual machine. However when someone logs on the main TMG Settings window always loads. Has anyone come across this and how do you stop the settings screen from showing?
I only really want to use the TMG Client to inform the staff and students of the HTTPS inspection.

I remember having this problem when trying to put out the client for ISA 2004 - in the end I put a registry hack in for every user via a GPO, as it uses keys from HKEY_CURRENT_USER. I set up mine to hide the client, and then copied the registry settings into a .reg file for deployment

Don't suppose you remember what settings they are within HKEY_CURRENT_USER?

What extra do you get by pushing out the client please?
I just point my clients to it using proxy settings.

Notifications of HTTPS inspection is what we plan to use it for. So that legally we notify all users we are inspecting all secured traffic. Just to cover us as one of our SLT is an ex lawyer

Actually when I checked it wasn't a registry hack.
I had to use a GPO to copy two ini files to the local users folder on their login.
First one is called management.ini and contains:
Second one is called common.ini and contains:
Use a login script to copy these to:
ServerName=<your server name>
c:\documents and settings\%username%\local settings\application data\microsoft\firewall client 2004\
You may have to create this folder first in the script. Took a bit of tinkering but these ini files sorted it out.

why not configure this centrally. you can do this by looking at the properties of your internal network - firewall client tab
