SUSE® Manager Proxy is a SUSE Manager add-on and caches software packages on an internal, central server. The proxy caches patch updates from SUSE or custom RPMs generated by third-party organizations. A proxy allows to use bandwidth more effectively because client systems connect to the proxy for updates, and the SUSE Manager server is no longer required to handle all client requests. The proxy also supports transparent custom package deployment.
This Quick Start explains how to install and set up SUSE Manager Proxy and how to get started with the most important tasks.
