Aspera Proxy Server 1.0.0 Release Notes
Release Notes Updated: 7/15/2013
Aspera Proxy, Aspera's open and authenticated proxy solution, protects your organization’s network while enabling secure, high-speed fasp transfers to and from highly restrictive network environments. Built on top of the Linux kernel, it allows transparent pass-through of fasp transfer sessions across secure DMZs without impeding transfer speeds or compromising the security of your internal network.
Aspera Proxy also supports load balancing, high availability, and flexible security policies. It consolidates fasp transfers in and out of a corporate network and enables precise control over which users can initiate transfers with remote Aspera transfer servers.
Aspera Proxy supports both forward (outbound) and reverse (inbound) proxy modes, allowing fasp transfers to be initiated by users who are either inside or outside the corporate network.
Do not install Aspera Proxy on a machine where Aspera Enterprise Server or Connect Server is installed. If these products are already installed, be sure to remove them before installing Aspera Proxy.
