Net Folder proxy users provide Net Folder access for three Filr functions: file sharing, indexing, and synchronization, as illustrated in Figure 10-5.

Here are some pointers regarding proxy users.
Proxy users must have all rights at each Net Folder Server volume or share, and in the case of NSS volumes, they must have READ rights to the volume objects in eDirectory.
If the proxy user password changes in the LDAP identity store, it must also be changed in the Net Folder Server configuration dialog.
Access to shared files always involves the proxy user, even for users who have file system rights to the shared files.
Proxy users have no role when users with Net Folder rights access Net Folders directly.
