    Hi Parkiis,

    The web farm frameworks has been integrated to Application request routing.The server farm framework ensures that you can combine multiple independent servers into a server farm. When the request volume is too large, it can be allocated to each server to reduce the pressure on a single server. The role of arr is to allocate the request before the request reaches the server farm and decide which server to send the request to. Reverse proxy while load balancing.

    Shared configuration allows you to export and send the configuration file to other servers after configuring on one server. After importing the file, other servers can have the same configuration as the first server. This has an excellent effect in configuring content servers in the server farm, avoiding a large number of configurations for each server. 

    Best regards,

    YOu are askinga lot of questions about the basics of using ARR.

    I suggest rather then asking question after question is to learn a bit about ARR and read some documentation about it .

    The way I learnt about ARR in detail was watching the videos by excellent videos by Scott Forsyth from here:

     I watched them more than once to undertand it all.

    Hi Parkiis,

    In simple terms, a reverse proxy means that the client sends a request to the server, and the request will pass through the proxy server before going to the target server. Hiding the target server ip from the client is a reverse proxy.

    But this has nothing to do with what you asked in this thread. If you want a more detailed explanation, I suggest you create a new thread.
