File copy optimization by transmitting via multiple network interfaces RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Windows 8 Enterprise.

    I have 2 PCs with 2 NICs on each PC. Each NIC is connected to different network, let's say: and

    Let's assume PC1 gets IPs and

    Let's assume PC2 gets IPs and

    I'm sharing a drive 'W' on PC2 and map it to some letter Z on PC1 in the following way Z: = \\ \ W:

    I copy a file from \\ PC1 \ C: to Z:

    I expect traffic only via NIC, but actually there is also a traffic via NIC This occurs when both interface are in the same speed (100 Mb/s, for example). Actually, the traffic will go through the fastest interface exists on the PC (???!!!).

    How can I prevent it? How can I assure, that the traffic will go through

    The "route" table and its metrics are OK. This is not a solution.
