Resilio Agents can communicate over new uTP2 protocol designed for bulk data transfer. This protocol is built over UDP and can detect available bandwidth or network congestions and adjust its behavior accordingly in a smart way - increase data transit if possible, or avoid data loss and unwanted packet retransmission on a busy pipe.

Enable/ Disable WAN Optimization
WAN optimization can be enabled from AGENTS tab, using the toggle in corresponding column
Prerequisites For Using WAN Optimization
In a job, 2 clients must have WAN optimization enabled for uTP2 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 for WAN transfers. In LAN agents use TCP protocol mainly so the option does not apply. However, is can be enabled for VPN tunnels with custom parameter
true in Profile.
If your license does not support this feature, a corresponding error will show up. Contact a sales representative to have it added to your license.
