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.
Resilio Agents can communicate over new version of WAN optimized protocol (ZGT). This protocol is built over UDP and has adaptive behavior: it probes the channel reaction (packet loss, RTT and throughput over time) to different amount of data pushed in several concurrent threads and sequentially picks the optimal speed.
Enable/ Disable WAN Optimization
WAN optimization can be enabled from AGENTS tab, using the toggle in corresponding column for Resilio Connect v 2.8 .....
.... or by including a WAN feature in license package applied to the agent in new license packages.
Prerequisites For Using WAN Optimization
In a job, 2 clients must have WAN optimization enabled for ZGT protocol to be used between them. If either agent has it disabled, others won't able to communicate with it over WAN optimized protocol.
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.
