Are TransportClients Aware of each other?

I think the answer is no, just confirming.

I planning to have a ElasticSearch cluster running, and TransportClients
hitting it from different DMZ's, the TransportClients will not have the
ability to talk to each other, but all the TransportsClients can talk to
all the ElasticSearch nodes. I just want to confirm, there is no reason
TransportClients would talk with each other?

Many thanks.

Yes, client nodes are isolated from the rest of the cluster by design. The
cluster master node fences them out in the discovery, so they can't
interfere with the cluster node states, shard allocation and routing
algorithm, and the like.

Best regards,

Jörg
