Summary

A guide to installing Visigo in the Windows operating system.

Solution

You can choose to do this by either:

Creating a silent install using the command line

You can create an unattended installation to push the Visigo Client out to all network devices.

  1. Download the Visigo .msi file(s) to a shared network location.
  2. Create a script that includes the following command line:
  3. msiexec /i "path-to-installer.msi" ORGID="<orgid>" PROXY=”<proxy:port>” /qn

    where:

    path_to_installer’ is the full network path to the location of the relevant downloaded installation program

    orgid’ is the unique ID provided for your organization.

    proxy’ is your organization proxy setting. This field is OPTIONAL, if no proxy is provided Visigo will use the device settings. If connection using the proxy settings fails Visigo will attempt to connect directly.

    For example:

    msiexec /i \\mynetworkdrive\downloads\Visigo_x64.msi ORGID=123456789 /qn

Creating an active directory group policy object (GPO)

Using an Active Directory Group Policy Object (GPO), you can create an unattended installation to push the Visigo Client out to all network devices. For a detailed description of how to setup such a GPO, refer to your Active Directory documentation.

  1. Download the Visigo .msi file(s) to a shared network location.
  2. Create a GPO policy that:
    • Deploys the Visigo_x86.msi (for Windows 32-bit) or Visigo_x64.msi (for Windows 64-bit)
    • Configures the following registry settings:

    Key Name — HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smoothwall

    Value Name Description
    OrgID The unique ID provided for your organization.
    ProxyServer Your organization proxy setting. This field is OPTIONAL, if no proxy is provided Visigo will use the device settings. If connection using the proxy settings fails Visigo will attempt to connect directly.
