Need to determine flow of network traffic between 2 WinXP computers
Posted on 2007-12-02
If I have a mapped network drive on PC1 pointing to PC2, then I download and select that mapped drive as the target how will the network traffic actually flow?
1. The router be smart enough to direct download staright to PC2?
2. Or...will PC1 still play a part in constantly having to direct traffic to PC2?
I'm basically making sure my network is as efficient as possible, so I can make proper workflow adjustments depending which one is the case.
