ERA Proxy is another component of ESET Remote Administrator and serves two purposes. In a medium-sized or enterprise network with many clients (for example, 10,000 clients or more), you can use ERA Proxy to distribute load between multiple ERA Proxies facilitating the main ERA Server. The other advantage of the ERA Proxy is that you can use it when connecting to a remote branch office with a weak link. This means that the ERA Agent on each client is not connecting to the main ERA Server directly via ERA Proxy, which is on the same local network as the branch office. This configuration frees up the link to the branch office. The ERA Proxy accepts connections from all local ERA Agents, compiles data from them and uploads it to the main ERA Server (or another ERA Proxy). This allows your network to accommodate more clients without compromising the performance of your network and database queries.

Depending on your network configuration, it is possible for ERA Proxy to connect to another ERA Proxy and then connect to the main ERA Server.

For proper function of the ERA Proxy, the host computer where you install ERA Proxy must have an ESET Agent installed and must be connected to the upper level (either ERA Server or an upper ERA Proxy, if there is one) of your network.
