Software Deployment Question
Is it possible to do MI's while only on-prem?
I'm currently working on a project involving Kace SMA, and I had a quick question. We are in a spot where some patches need to go out to client machines, but we don't want them to go out over VPN due to the worlds current situation. Is it possible to trigger managed installs only if a client PC is connected on-prem, or am I up the creek?
Thanks in advance.

if I understand you correctly, you only want to install software if the device is in the company office or any branch office and not remote when VPNing into it.
So you need to create smart labels which check for the IP address and the machine is only in this label when it has a local IP or any other option to determine if the machine is locally or not.
Then bind the MI only to this label.
Or if you need multiple labels you can build labels with the label wizard which contain multiple linked labels (ie Label Name = local IP Label AND Label Name = Workstation label) and link them to the MI/Scripts.
Please be aware that with a check in the machines go into the label if they are onsite and fall off when they are VPNed
