Install the Netskope Client in IdP Mode and Enroll Users For Windows

The Netskope Client (v71 and above) can be installed a couple of ways for IdP mode.

  • Install NSClient.msi without any parameters (This will prompt user for the Netskope tenant name and then OKTA login details)

  • Install NSClient.msi with IDP parameters in multi-user mode (This will prompt user for OKTA login details only) – This can also be packaged and deployed via software deployment tools

The steps below are for installing the Client with IdP parameters, which is recommended so users do not have to remember the tenant name; only their IdP login details.

Note

Download the NS Client for Windows from your Home POP:

https://download-<tenant name>.goskope.com/dlr/win/get

https://download-<tenant name>.eu.goskope.com/dlr/win/get

https://download-<tenant name>.de.goskope.com/dlr/win/get

You need admin rights to deploy the NS Client onto the endpoints.

  1. Enter these parameters:

    msiexec /I NSClient.msi installmode=IDP tenant=<tenant name> domain=<goskope.com / eu.goskope.com / de.goskope.com> mode=peruserconfig
