How can I manage the network bandwidth allocated to the ECHOshare Desktop Agent?

Overview

The maximum bandwidth allocated to the ECHOshare Desktop Agent can be controlled via the ECHOshare Desktop Agent preferences. The maximum transfer speed can be set for each network connection type. For instance, you may wish to set your ethernet connection to use full speed, but use a slower speed via wifi and disable any data from transferring via your bluetooth tethered phone.

 

To access the ECHOshare settings:

Windows

Click the ECHOshare Workplace icon  in the system tray and, from the 'Settings' sub-menu, select the 'Network' tab.

Mac

Click the ECHOshare Workplace icon  in the menu bar and select the 'Open ECHOshare Preferences...' tab. Next, select the 'Network' tab.

 

Within the Network settings, the following controls are available:

  • Connection Usage
    Specify what traffic can use the connection:
    • Backup & Sync
    • Sync only
    • None
  • Transfer speed
    Specify the maximum speed the connection can use.
  • Use fastest speed
    Specify a time slot when the maximum speed can be used.
