You can use the silent installation feature of Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) to install View Agent Direct-Connection (VADC) Plug-In. In a silent installation, you use the command line and do not have to respond to wizard prompts.
|MSI Property||Description||Default Value|
|LISTENPORT||The TCP port that VADC Plug-In uses to accept remote connections. By default, the installer will configure Windows Firewall to allow traffic on the port.||443|
|MODIFYFIREWALL||If set to 1, the installer will configure Windows Firewall to allow traffic on LISTENPORT. If set to 0, the installer will not.||1|
|DISABLE_SSLV3||If SSL 3.0 is already explicitly enabled or disabled in the registry, the installer ignores this property. Otherwise, the installer disables SSL 3.0 at the operating system level if this property is set to 1, and the installer performs no action if this property is set to 0.||1|
