An Os and networking question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hypothetically if you send a command to a remote Pc, on a port used by say
WoW. Who would recieve the data first, the windows Os or the WoW program?

I am wishing to understand how this works, is each program given it's own space, or is windows a stepping stone inbetween the program and the internet

It depends on how the packets are sorted. Some newer boards like the Striker have the ability to regulate packets to enhance gaming performance.

What sort of command are you talking about?

OS would see it first since the application is running within the OS.

The network adaptor would recieve it and process it. The driver translates it so the OS understands. OS then passes data to app.
Once again...
