Territory Gateways
Territory gateways are links that you establish between territories. A territory gateway enables clients in one territory to receive documents that are published in another territory. Territory gateways are often used to connect territories that are geographically distant or whose clients share only a limited number of document types.
Unlike territories, whose Brokers operate as a single unit and share the same document types and client groups, a gateway is simply a bridge that enables instances of specific document types to travel from one territory to another. (Message subscriptions are shared dynamically/implicitly in a territory and statically/explicitly across a gateway connection.)
You use the Broker user interface to create territory gateways and to specify which document types can travel across them.
For information about working with territory gateways, see Managing Territory Gateways.
