Symantec Private Branch Exchange PBX

A common component that uses socket passing to reduce the number of ports required to be open across a firewall. PBX uses a paradigm similar to that of a telephone switchboard in which calls placed to a switchboard are redirected to a known extension. In the PBX exchange, client connections sent to the exchange’s port are redirected to an extension associated with the CommandCentral Storage Management Server.
