Proxy Connections

The Gateway Network Diagram will also display proxy connections differently. Instead of a green arrow indicating status and direction, the connection will be grey with no direction indicator. Clicking on a proxy connection will give the following information:

  • Whether or not the two Gateways are using a Proxy connection
  • Which Gateway the proxy is routed through
  • The proxy connection's target Gateway
