Downloading files in air-gapped environments

In an air-gapped environment where a secure network is physically isolated from insecure networks, such as the public Internet or an insecure local area network, and the computers on opposite sides of the air gap cannot communicate, to download and transfer files to the main BigFix server you can use the Airgap utility and the BES Download Cacher utility.

These utilities can also help download patch contents in a Fixlet site or single file downloads from a url. For downloading about these utilities, see Utilities.

To be able to gather across the network from the main BigFix the clients must be air-gapped together with the main BigFix server.
