    Software Deployment Portal - Uses PPS?


      Hey everyone,

      We are just getting around to deploying the Software Deployment portal but have a few questions.


      What is the recommended delivery method? I see "Use download from source to deploy files", "Use run from source to deploy files" and "Use multicast to deploy files" but am not sure which to use. Does the deployment portal use the client's designated PPS? What does the frequency of the policy need to be (once, As desired, periodic)? 


      If it doesn't use the PPS, it could seriously affect bandwidth for us.


      Our environment:

      Landesk 8.7 SP5

      4000 nodes (mainly XP, some Mac),  65 PPS' serving multiple subnets, 68 MDR


      Thanks for the help,
