Hello,

To set up the PMG cluster, communication between nodes is better to use in private IP, example 172.16.0.0.0/16 or to use public IP?

Generally local IPs are preferred for better latency.

Okay, thank you. Otherwise, in the doc it is stated that PMG uses a VPN link to run the cluster.

Can you tell me more about it? Is it possible to remove the tunnel on a local network?

Communication is via ssh tunnel and no, there is no supported way to disable this.

Just one last question, if I want to change the IP addresses of the nodes in the future. Just modify the cluster.conf file and the hosts file?

Modifying the hosts file involves adding two entries to it. Each entry contains the IP address to which you want the site to resolve and a version of the Internet address.

For example, add the following two entries points, www(dot)domain(dot)com and domain(dot)com

Thank you, but that doesn't answer the question about modifying an IP on an existing cluster.
