3.4. Proxies with RHN Satellite Server

In addition to the methods described in detail within this chapter, customers also have the option of using RHN Proxy Server in conjunction with RHN Satellite Server. This works similarly to the vertically tiered Proxy configuration but increases capacity significantly, as Satellites can serve a much greater number of client systems.

For a thorough description of this combination, refer to the Example Topologies chapter of the RHN Satellite Server Installation Guide. Linking the two products' SSL certificates is described in the RHN Client Configuration Guide. To find out how channels and packages are shared between them, refer to the RHN Channel Management Guide.
