    1. Direct IP addresses only work inside the local LAN.

    2. Traffic will flow using the local LAN if both devices are on the same network. More info: Jump Desktop Connect tries it's best to create a direct connection between the two devices (i.e. what you call peer-to-peer). In our experience we can create a direct connection in 90% of the cases. If either device is behind a heavily firewalled network, we might need to fallback to using one of our relay servers across the globe (the other 10% of cases). Note: Connection data is always encrypted end-to-end - even when connecting over your local LAN or across the internet. This way your connection remains secure and also our relay servers can't see the unencrypted traffic between our devices - this is very important from a privacy / security perspective.
