Re: Policy Manager Proxy vs neighborcast

Client Security V13.10 currently has no support for neigborcast as that protocol is bases on AUA (Backweb). Smiley Sad

 

AUA was replaced by GUTS2


Generally spoken:
if neighborcast is usefull in an environment in addition to PM Proxy depends on your hosts connection to the PMP. If they are all in the same 1GBit-Network, NC is not usefull. If some Clients are behind a slow VPN-Conection NC would be helpfull to reduce traffic, but then again it depends on the number of Clients behind that VPN.

Also if you are not able to place a PMP in the remote office NC would be helpfull.

(Hope this is beein read by some R&D and PMs) Smiley Wink

CSPR13.10, I can still see Automatic Update Agent (v10.10) and Neighborcast setting in PM advanced view.

Re: Policy Manager Proxy vs neighborcast

already in V13.00 release notes:
***
New protocol for delivering updates

The new protocol decreases the probability of clients having to do a full download of updates, for example after a weekend offline.
GUTS2 protocol has replaced BackWeb for downloading updates from F-Secure.
Note: Neighborcast for GUTS2 updates is currently not supported in this version.
