Configuring Multiple Connection Routes

You can configure multiple connections for a client computer or client computer group as described and depicted below.
  • Multiple Proxy Connections
  • Proxy/Multiple Proxy and Direct Connections

Procedure

Multiple Proxy Connections

Use multiple proxy connections for faster data throughput, high availability, and load balancing.

  1. Install an additional proxy. See Set up the SnapProtect Proxy.
  2. Configure the client computer or client computer group to use the additional proxy. See Quick Reference for Advanced Configuration on the Perimeter Network Using SnapProtect Proxy page.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each additional proxy.

Proxy/Multiple Proxy and Direct Connections

We recommend configuring proxy/multiple proxy and direct routes for a client computer or client computer group, so that:

  • The CommServe host can use the proxy connection to access the client if the client is outside the network.
  • The client can use the direct connection to access the CommServe host, when the client is inside the network.

    You can configure the one-way firewall (client connects to the CommServe) using a predefined firewall topology or Basic or Advanced firewall settings.
