This page is used to create an address used to connect to the primary site from the secondary site Because secondary sites must be in the same forest as their parent site, you cannot configure a Site Connection Account for a standard sender address between a secondary child site and a primary parent site. The secondary site server's computer account is always used. If required, you can configure the Site Connection Account for the secondary site to the primary site address to use a Windows user account from the parent site Configuration Manager console after the secondary site is installed.

The addresses to each site created during this process are open for all traffic 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using unlimited bandwidth between sites. You can adjust the address properties in the primary site's Configuration Manager console for each site after the secondary site installation has completed.

This page contains the elements described in the following table.
