About federation server proxies

Federation server proxies are computers that run Windows Server 2008 and AD FS 2.0 software that have been configured manually to act in the proxy role. You can use Verbundserver proxies in your organization to provide intermediary services between an Internet client and a Verbundserver that is behind a firewall on your corporate network.

Although the Verbundserver and the Verbundserverproxy roles cannot be installed on the same computer, a Verbundserver can perform Verbundserverproxy functions. For more information, see When to Create a Federation Server.

The act of installing the AD FS 2.0 software on a Windows Server 2008 computer and configuring it to serve in the proxy role makes that computer a Verbundserverproxy.
