RCSP Study Guide - Peering Rules
Configuring peering rules defines what to do when a Steelhead appliance receives an autodiscovery
probe from another Steelhead appliance. As such, the scope of a peering rule is limited to a server-side Steelhead appliance (the one receiving the probe). Note that peering rules on an intermediary Steelhead appliance (or server-side) will have no effect in preventing optimization with a client-side Steelhead appliance if it is using a fixed-target rule designating the intermediary Steelhead appliance as its destination (since there is no auto-discovery probe in a fixed-target rule).
