Publishing deployment guide

Updated: February 1, 2011

Applies To: Unified Access Gateway

This application publishing deployment guide provides detailed guidance on how to publish corporate applications via Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) portals.

Through the creation of Forefront UAG trunks that act as consolidated gateways, you can publish one or more corporate applications. Applications that are published via a trunkl can be accessed by a diverse range of remote client endpoints. Endpoint access is controlled by a number of mechanisms, which include, client authentication, endpoint health checks against access policies, and authorization for specific trunk applications. Each trunk has a portal page via which users access the published applications.

About this guide

This guide is intended for use by network, application server, and Forefront UAG administrators. Before you start deploying an application publishing solution, read the Publishing planning guide to help plan your deployment.

Use the topics in this guide as follows:

  1. Overview of application publishing─Learn about the application publishing features.

  2. Planning an application publishing deployment─Read a summary of the planning required before publishing applications.

  3. Implementing a trunk─Follow deployment steps to create a portal, publish applications in the portal, configure portal and application settings, and redirect HTTP requests for HTTPS portals to HTTPS.

  4. Setting up Remote Network Access─You can publish the Remote Network Access application to allow remote endpoints to connect to your internal network with a remote VPN client connection. Before publishing Remote Network Access, follow the steps in this topic to set up a remote client VPN connection using the legacy Forefront UAG Network Connector, or SSTP.

  5. Setting up the File Access application─You can publish the File Access application in your portal to allow endpoints to access corporate file shares and servers. Before publishing File Access, complete the steps described in this topic to prepare file servers and shares for remote access.
