Resilio Agents can communicate over our new Zero Gravity Transport (ZGT) protocol, designed for bulk data transfer. This protocol is built over UDP and can detect available bandwidth or network congestions and smartly adjust its behavior accordingly - increase data transit if possible, or avoid data loss and unwanted packet retransmission on a busy pipe.
Important Note:This new feature is a paid add-on for Connect. Please contact Sales or your account executive to activate this feature.
Enable/ Disable WAN Optimization
WAN optimization can be enabled from AGENTS tab, using the toggle in the corresponding column.
Prerequisites For Using WAN Optimization
In a job, 2 clients must have WAN optimization enabled for the ZGT protocol to be used between them. If any client has it disabled, no other clients will be able to communicate with it over uTP2.
By default, this option applies only to WAN transfers. In LAN, Agents use the TCP protocol mainly so the option does not apply. However, it can be enabled for VPN tunnels with custom parameter
true in Profile.
