Name Description


In order for a BITS peer caching server to serve cached content to BITS clients, the server must be able to listen for requests from clients and accept the requests.

Peer List

BITS automatically discovers new peers when a job requests content from a peer and there are not enough peers in the client's peer list. Peers must be in the same subnet and domain as the client and be enabled to serve content to peers.
