When we began this project, our intent was to create a real-world scenario that would guide IT professionals in using Microsoft best practices to deploy Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 2010. We also included an explanation of the architectural side of the product, which we consider an advantage for you, because the explanation was reviewed by engineers who work directly on UAG at Microsoft Customer Service and Support (CSS). This book provides administrative procedures, tested design examples, quick answers, and tips. In addition, it covers some of the most common deployment scenarios and describes ways to take full advantage of the product’s capabilities. This book covers pre-deployment tasks, software and hardware requirements, performance considerations, and installation and configuration, using best practice recommendations.
Plan, design, and deploy Forefront United Access (UAG) with insights straight from the Forefront team at Microsoft. Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG)--the evolution of the Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG)--delivers a more robust and transparent solution for inbound access from anywhere. This pragmatic guide drills into system components and capabilities, identifies software and hardware requirements, and provides scenario-based advice for planning and design, including policy control and availability and scalability considerations. You'll learn how to plan and deploy an SSL VPN solution for your environment, and how to publish applications through Forefront UAG, including Microsoft Exchange Server, SharePoint® 2010, and Windows Server® 2008 Remote Desktop Services.
