SCCM 2012 R2 Internet Based Client Management

Can someone give me a quick overview on how they are using Internet Based Client Management in their environment.

Some helpful things I am looking for.

IBMC -Should it be a separate server from Primary Site Server?

What roles should typically be installed?

A helpful Visio drawing would be great.

There are typically 2 ways to do this:

Option 1:  Open ports through the firewall and forward to the site server.

Option 2:  Put an MP/DP/SUP out on the DMZ.

Hi Mike,

Can you please help me with this...

I brought the book : System Center 2012 Configuration Manager (SCCM) Unleashed and I need some clarification on Internet based client topic.

Can you please let me know if this is a supportive design? I'm getting confused with statements in the book.

Here we do not want internet based clients to connect to ANYTHING in LAN network. I have designed to have the entire internet facing Site Systems in DMZ, connected to the Primary server.

If my design looks OK to you... then why we need to mention the Internet FQDN of Primary server in Primary Server Site System Property. This server should not be visible to internet based clients.

The most important point here is we want internet based clients to talk to ONLY DMZ site system server. And we cannot open any ports for internet based clients to talk to Primary server kept in Chicago LAN.

I'm not able to add the picture here... please let me know know the email address where I can send that.
