Forwarders 7.3.2 with deployment server 6.5.3

Path Finder


I it possible to deploy apps with a deployment server is on version 6.5.3 to clients on version 6.[45].x ?

I know that a deployment server on 8.0.0 can server client with version 6.x or above but I don't found the minimum deployment server version for a client on 8.0.0 or 7.3.2

Best regards

6.x deployment servers are compatible with deployment clients running 5.0 and above.

The question was asked the other way around and is still not answered anywhere.

I.e. yes FWD 7.x can connect to DS 8.x

but can FWD 8.x connect to DS 7.x?

probably it could connect to it, but I’m quite sure that it’s not a supported configuration. For all other components it has said that “server” part must be a higher level. Only exeption (what I have found) is that indexer peers could be a lower level than SHs but also there is remarks that only temporarily.
