SCCM Data Transfer Between Site Systems

Hello~
   We are trying to figure out if there is a way to do the following... Our SCCM system has been sending out packages and update files to the management points at our remote offices durring business hours.  At times it is actually clogging the WAN which has a small pipe.  I know that I can Throttle the BITS by using the Client Agent Properties but that will also effect the clients here at our main facility.  

Is there anyway that we can restrict the transfer of site data during business hours either by throttling or other means?

Thanks

I believe if you select "Apply to branch distribution points only" then the setting will not affect the clients.

By my understanding... The Branch Distribution Point is a separate type of distribution point for Branch offices with small numbers of employees.  Right now the Servers in the remote offices are acting as Normal Distribution Points.  At what point does the Branch Distribution Point not make sense based on the Numbers?

You are Correct.  Thank you for the quick Response.   There is a flaw in the documentation that I have in a Microsoft Press book that has been updated at the following link.... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680853.aspx  

Microsoft Assumes that you are going to be installing the BDP on an XP or later Client and not on a Server OS (which is also Possible).  When installed on a client OS the BDP is limited to a total numer of 10 connections (a limitation of Windows XP).  This is not the case on Server operating systems.

Thanks Again...
