I'm evaluating Jump Desktop and currently using it between my 2 Apple Mac computers.
I have the Jump Desktop installed on one machine and I have installed the Jump Desktop Connect app on the other one.
Clearly if I use my credentials to login to the Jump Desktop Connect and then the Jump Desktop app I will automatically see the target Mac as being available to connect.
Then I assume I will be able to connect to that Mac from anywhere, rather than just from my local LAN.
Also (or instead of) I can just manually add the local/private IP address of my target Mac and then connect to it from my other Mac when on the same LAN.
My first question is that I assume with this latter method I will only be able to connect when I'm on the same local LAN?
Also in relation to the two connection options what's the route of the communication. I assume that for the latter method the connection is peer-to-peer rather than via the Internet.
In relation to the former connection method, if the two Macs are on the same LAN is the traffic flow still via the Internet or is that also local.
