    You will need to enable sccm client from internet in registry for all users though policy or manually.
    Then you will need PKI certificate setup.

    I assume you have IBCM setup.

    1. VPN is going to be your best option. You can configure the installation of the client using Software Updates or GPO or users can manually run it from a file share or a batch file.

    2. You will exposed your SCCM server and will face security risks. I suggest you don’t do this. Even so, computers will need to install certs to have them managed over the Internet.

    3. Using remote support tools, you could try to install the client that way but these systems will still need to be able to talk to the MP and get policies and certs. Therefore, the VPN approach is the best.
