Yes I am familiar with nodes concepts, I did not find it usefull

My problem is not about tranffering content, issue is uploading contents to repository over WAN, and that is very slow... Even if I use nodes my uploads will go to remote only and that will slow down.... If in nodes concept sync from.child and parent (both side sync) works then only its bit usefull....

Another thing is child node has its own mongodb, does it replicates roles and users created on parent node ? Is all authnticatuin works from parent or child ?

With nodes you could transfer content using a sync of TK repository content from UK repository content which should perform faster than an upload between sites.
