About distribution points

A device with Network Agent installed can be used as a distribution point. In this mode, Network Agent can perform the following functions:

Deployment of distribution points on an organization's network has the following objectives:

A distribution point is assigned for an administration group. In this case, the scope of the distribution point includes all devices within the administration group and all of its subgroups. However, the device that acts as the distribution point may not be included in the administration group to which it has been assigned.

You can make a distribution point function as a connection gateway. In this case, devices in the scope of the distribution point will be connected to the Administration Server through the gateway, not directly. This mode can be useful in scenarios that do not allow the establishment of a direct connection between the Administration Server and managed devices.
