Peer to peer - LAN or WAN? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If two machines sync via Live Mesh will it always do this via the Internet even if they're on the same network, or will the program spot this and only use the LAN for the movement of files?

  • There are other discussions on this question in the forum, but it is my understanding that it *should* use the LAN and not the WAN for peer to peer, but that this doesn't always happen. The Mesh team is working to improve the entire peer to peer sync experience.
