I am wondering about such a setup:
Let's say I have a remote location with 500 clients and I have a relay in there. Actually I have 10 locations like this. And my clients travel between locations - laptop computers. To cope with this I would like to have relay autoselection. But how will my clients get relays.dat for the first time?
I see two options:
1. I start with manual selection. I create 10 different installation packages for every location (pointing to the appropriate relay) and I use them in respective locations to install clients. When all clients are installed I switch to autoselection.
2. I allow clients from remote offices to connect to the central TEM server- by setting the appropriate firewall rules/NAT etc. I have relay autoselection turned on. I use same installation package for every client - pointing to the TEM server. So all my clients connect to TEM server at first. Then I turn on autoselection and they choose their closest relay.
The second option is simpler but puts much more load on TEM server and the network. Am I correct?
Thanks for help
