installing advanced client on remote network

installing advanced client on remote network

I'm trying to install an advanced client on a host that isn't in the same network as the SMS server.
I defined the roaming boundaries and the site boandaries to include the host's IP.
When I install the client I am asked to enter a site code, I enter the code, but after installation is over I don't see the new client in the "All Systems" collection.
I looked in the SQL table and I don't see the host in the "System_IP_Address_ARR" table as well.
I have communication between the host and the SMS server (I download the advanced client installation from the server).
How do I enforce the SMS server to know the SMS client?
I tried to use a script to force the site assignment, but it didn't help (after I ran the script the host was still not known to the SMS server):

Set smsclient = CreateObject("Microsoft.SMS.Client")
oldsite = smsclient.GetAssignedSite

Any idea is welcome!

RE: installing advanced client on remote network

Did you go yo all tasks and update the collection and refresh it?
