MediaAgent / Network Proxy Question

im looking to deploy gateway proxies in order to isolate customer tenants from the mediaagent network.


my question is, do the clients need to initiate connections from their end trough the proxy in any way or
is a backup job always iniated from commserv  / mediaagent server?

Reasoning behind that, is that i could deploy the proxy with NAT without allowing any inbound traffic from the tenants network.


i guess for registering client, the client need to iniate the connection, but afterwards?

Hi @Daniel M 

The tunnel/connection is initiated on either client or MediaAgent, it all depends on how the topologies are configured.
