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: 10.0.0.0/24 and 192.168.0.0/24.

    Let's assume PC1 gets IPs 10.0.0.1 and 192.168.0.1.

    Let's assume PC2 gets IPs 10.0.0.2 and 192.168.0.2.

    I'm sharing a drive 'W' on PC2 and map it to some letter Z on PC1 in the following way Z: = \\ 10.0.0.2 \ W:

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

    I expect traffic only via NIC 10.0.0.1, but actually there is also a traffic via NIC 192.168.0.1. 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 10.0.0.1?

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

    Thanks,

    Michael.
