I have been asked to post this idea as it is something that the users at our company have expressed an interest in.
Our company makes extensive use of FSA servers. What we would like to see is the ability to be able to set up a list of FSA servers in the Preferences Configuration for Proxies window. We would like to be able to list the FSA's (2 or 3) in the sequence from default proxy to the one furthest away perhaps.
Something like :
FSA1 (default proxy)
In this case, if at some point FSA1 goes down, the client should automatically try and connect to FSA2 (the next one in the list sequence) transparent to the user. That might be oversimplified, but that is the general idea.
There are some obvious issues or things to consider in doing this like, the proxy caches and how they may be impacted. Another possibility is to switch automatically to direct connection if the FSA is down, again transparent to the user. The next time the client is started it should automatically first attempt to connect to the FSA again (without user intervention).
