Hi all,


I need some more information on how client server connection is working in order to configure the firewall rules.


How does a PI and PI/AF client (like ProcessBook or CoreSight) will connect to a AF and/or the PI Server behind a firewall.


Will every app create its one point-point connection to the server?


Does every trend display create new connections?


Will every user, that makes uses of e.g. ProcessBook, start its one connections


or is there a broker like functionality on the client that is collecting and combining requests to the server?


Thanks in advanvance
