Data traffic between two machines on same wi-fi network

Question Data traffic between two machines on same wi-fi network

Hi.

Can someone please tell me if PocketCloud data traffic stays on my wireless network if both devices are connected to it (no internet traffic) or if it goes out via the internet connection and back again?

Basically, I want to know if I'd be risking using up my internet data allowance (or, worse, the mobile data if for some reason the internet connection is down).

Thanks

RE: Data traffic between two machines on same wi-fi network

As long as WiFi is connected we will use WiFi. But this is actually up to the carrier, who will always want data to go over wifi when possible to reduce network load on their mobile network.

It is up to the user to close the application, however, when not on WiFi. Because we will work on the mobile network. If you are concerned about that, I believe there are existing applications that will prevent applications from using mobile data. I would do some searching online.
