Article summary

When an agent is connected to the CTERA Portal and when a CTERA Edge Filer is connected to the CTERA Portal in Sync Gateway or Caching Gateway mode, files are synced between the device and the CTERA Portal. You sync content with the CTERA Portal from the device and configure what content should be synced. You can also throttle the sync data from the device, for example, to free up bandwidth from other tasks at certain times of the day.

You can also sync content from the CTERA Portal.

To sync content from the CTERA Portal:

  1. Click the DEVICES option in the navigation pane.
    Note

    This page displays all of your devices that have been connected to your account, for example, laptops and CTERA Edge Filers and mobile phones.
