Mohamed,


No difference in other networks. All you will see if you capture the traffic from that client is an UDP packet every 5 seconds. Since there will be no CAS in your other networks, that will be ignored and nothing else changes.

Mohamed,


You don't have to do mapping rules. You can place all your users in a single default role which you define when you're defining the AD SSO provider. If you want to place them in different roles, based on certain attributes from AD, then you have to use mapping rules, so short answer, no.
