Use the Remote Agent Utility to add, change, or delete the media server names or IP addresses that this remote Windows computer publishes to. Each media server that you add to the list on the Publishing tab displays this remote computer in its backup selection tree, under Favorite Resources.
This information that the Remote Agent publishes includes the version of the Remote Agent and the remote computer’s IP addresses. Because the remote computer’s IP address is published to the media server, the media server can connect to and display the remote computer even if it is in an unknown domain.
For each media server that is published to, you can specify a local backup network for operations between the media server and the remote computer. Directing jobs to a specified local network rather than to a corporate network isolates the backup data traffic so that other connected networks are not affected when operations are performed between the media server and the remote computer.
