Description:  

This policy setting specifies whether the client computer should use the Hosted Cache mode, and if so, what
the address of the BranchCache server is. The Hosted Cache mode enables a client computer to retrieve
content from a BranchCache server that acts as the central (hosted) cache for a branch office. When using
the Hosted Cache mode, content downloaded by BranchCache-enabled client computers is pushed to the
BranchCache server, which then serves as the centralized cache for other BranchCache enabled client
computers in the branch office. Client computers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to communicate with the
BranchCache server.

To use this policy setting, you must specify the address of the BranchCache server and this address must
match the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the server specified in the certificate for the BranchCache
server. Additionally, the certificate root for the BranchCache server's certificate must be in the client
computer's trusted root store.

If you enable this policy setting and specify a valid location of the hosted cache, the Hosted Cache mode is
turned on. For this policy setting to take effect, you also need to enable the "Turn on BranchCache" policy
setting.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the Hosted Cache mode is turned off.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista.
