I'm curious which is faster for performing the task? If I were to copy a file from one machine to another machine both connected on the same LAN or WAN, is FTP faster or is a straight copy command faster?
The operating system would be a Windows based system, primarily either Windows NT Server or Windows 2000 Server. Either type of operating system would reside on either machines but both would be some flavor of Windows.
Any assistance would greatly be apprecriated.
