Hi,

1- Kindly confirm, that the GUP shall only be utilized for communications related to updates push to clients..

2- and the remaining communications e.g. policy enforcement and clients monitoring on the SEPM server shall remain direct with SEPM server? 

regards.

The GUP provides content for ALL components (AV, NTP, PTP)

Yes, clients still contact the SEPM to upload logs, update policies, etc.

For the low bandwidth site, you can manage it through the GUP.

SEPM server will distribute the data to GUP client all the remote site client will direct communicate to GUP client.

Open Port 2967 for this communication.
