Would the remote proxy need access directly to the local vCenter or ESXi hosts, or would all of that flow through to one of the local proxies?
In case of full VM restore, Veeam B&R will automatically select the most suitable proxy over which VM data must be transported to the datastore (or you can select the specific proxy
to be used). In case of FLR, initial backup mount (with the purpose of browsing files) is performed on the server initiated the restore (backup server or console), while actual restore to original location uses mount either to the backup server or mount server, if it is configured on different server, so make sure the mount server also has appropriate access to the infrastructure.

Please review the gateway selection rules
in case automatic selection is on.
