General Information: The name and description of the Relay Group.
SoftwareSecurity Updates: Select the source from which this Relay Group will download and distribute SoftwareSecurity Updates. The Default Relay Group will always use the primary update source defined in the Administration > Updates > Relay Groups. However, any additional Relays Groups you create can use either the primary update source or another one that you have configured.
Proxies: Specify the proxy server that must be used to access the Primary Security Update Source. The Primary Security Update Source is usually Trend Micro Update Server, and is configured on the Administration > System Settings > Updates tab. The proxy will be used by the Relays in this Group if this Relay Group is configured to use the Primary Security Update Source. If this Relay Group is configured to get its Security Updates from another Relay Group, the proxy will only be used if connectivity with the other Relay Group is lost and this Group from must fall back to the Primary Security Update Source.
Members: Relays that are members of the group
The Assigned To tab shows the computers that are using this Relay as the source of the Security and Software Updates.
