Does Nitroshare use Internet bandwidth or just the local LAN ?

Asked by Sean on 2012-08-30

Does this app use Internet bandwidth to sync with all the client machines with your cloud app server or any such thing . . . or does it simple connect to other machines over LAN in a peer to peer way ?

NitroShare only works within the context of a local network, so to answer your question, no - NitroShare does not use any Internet bandwidth at all. All file transfers are run through the local network and the application uses broadcast packets to discover other machines on the network.

Can you help with this problem?
