Summary

Client is still communicating with the server, even if an Update Agent is already assigned to the client for update source.

Clients will still regularly communicate with the server even when an Update Agent is used. An Update Agent only provides updates like Pattern-Files and Scan Engines to the clients, in order to minimize the network traffic between the clients and the server.

The following traffic will still be just between the server and the client:

  • Client sends its logs directly to the server.
  • Client receives its settings and configuration changes from the server.
  • Program upgrades and version changes of the client will be done directly between the server and the client.

In OfficeScan, you will find the option Update from OfficeScan server if all customized sources are not available or not found, which allows the client to contact the OfficeScan server for updates if the Update Agent is not available.

If you want to limit the traffic between a branch office and a main office, you should install a separate WFBS or OfficeScan server in the branch office.
