    There's quite a lot of help information built into it. Point your web browser at https://[ip of smartcache] tell IE you're not bothered about the certificate error. Log in and click the big green question mark.

    Do you have access to the RM KB? I've just searched and there's lots of Smartcache stuff.

    Use the green question mark in the bottom right hand corner, the help really is excellent and will give you plenty of info.

    Hi peeps,

    Apologies if it seems like I'm pimping , but there's plenty of good information, and a place to discus RM products over at the RM Communities Forum. (that is unless you can find it in the RM Knowledgebase)

    RM Community Page

    Whats the best way in deploying the RM SmartCache Client (MSI File)

    via GPO?

    We are a full Windows network, no RM.

    I couldn't get the one provided to work, I think it's intended for an RM network.

    I just captured one using WinInstallLE and bunged it out with a GPO.

    If you've just bought your SmartCache it should be new enough to use AD authentication, thus rendering the client software redundant. This was only made available very recently, and I'm actually still waiting for the upgrade to come through on mine, but have you considered this at all? I'd certainly recommend looking into it if you plan on supporting anything other than XP clients.

    (Those with RM KnowledgeBase access, see TEC1569407)

    Now I know why I do not like RM!

    Created a IT Policy, applied the policy to the IT Users (i.e. ME!!)

    try and go to mail.google.com............BLOCKED! by Default policy when I've set me to use the IT Policy!

    Anyone

    Is your ident working correctly (or have you installed the ident service)?

    I have the client installed on my machine

    this is driving me crazy!!

    I re-did the policy (IT Policy) and set my self up as unfiltered and im getting blocked by the Default policy, how when I've set my self as unfiltered.
