Resilio Connect consists of 2 main modules: the Resilio Connect Management Console and the Resilio Connect Agent.
Resilio Connect Agents do the majority of the work - they download new files provided by other peers as well as seed to other peers the files they are missing. In file sharing terms, each Resilio Agent takes the role of both file sharing server and file sharing client.
Connect Management Console is operated by the admin and controls the behavior of all Resilio Agents: it sends all clients the list of folders they should sync, according to the policy set on the Connect Management Console, as well as collects agents' reports about file operations, synchronization progress and possible issues. For convenience and file hosting Connect Management Console brings it's own Agent pre-installed and connected to itself.
