Please find the description of the problem:
A diameter client and server communicates in the network through Proxy Agent.
Here, I have assumed PCEF is a diameter client and PCRF is a diameter server. Interface between the PCEF and the PCRF is known as Gx.

Does Proxy agent, which sits between PCEF and PCRF, need to support Gx application ?
Does Proxy agent validate presence of any mandatory or optional AVP when it receives a message from a diamter client (PCEF) before forwarding it to diameter server (PCRF) ?

Can someone please provides the detailed behavior of a proxy agent ?

In that case, how does a Diameter node make out whether its peer Diameter Agent node works as a Diameter Relay or works as a Diameter Re-direct node ?
Is it pre-configured in the Diameter node or by exchanging some Diameter messages that role is decided ?
