VeeamZip options

Using v9.

When I do a VeeamZip on one of my VMs, it doesn't give me the option of choosing which proxy to use. So when I have 2 or more vdisks, sometimes one of them gets processed by a remote proxy that has slower network connectivity, so my VM data goes over the WAN and back again for no reason, the whole zip would run much faster if it was using a local proxy.

The interface really needs a new option to choose proxy, like on backup and restore jobs.

In v9.5 we've added the proxy affinity technology which is probably another way to achieve what you want. As a workaround for v9 you might want to create a one-time backup job for the VM.

Another option is to ensure there's a hotadd proxy available for this VM, since the behavior you're describing indicates NBD transport mode is used.
