    Is dcc faster than going though the server, if so what is the downfall though?

    Direct cable connect is limeted to the speed of whichever interface you are connecting to. A serial port is rated at around 115K and a parallel port about 1MB. Just get two NIC's and a crossover cable...a server really has nothing to do with the whole equation.

    well i suppose i mean more over the net. I would think that bypassing any servers for any translation of any sort would be slower than having two clients connect to eachother and just send.

    If you're doing this over the Internet, by definition you're going through a bunch of servers before you get to the destination. Perhaps you could be a bit more clear in what you're trying to do?
