You connect to the server and have almost a single access connection to mirrored databases. Depending on the setup, they can run thousands of users at the same time. So no two computers would have the ability to talk to each other, since you aren't just talking to the same server, but to be connected must be assigned an individual thing. Fuck I can't think of it right now, I'll see if I can remember in the morning. Anyway, it's what a lot of government servers use to keep users from being able to talk to each other. So if you wanted to get around that, you would have to see if the information is sent over the air (though in most cases it would be pointless to run this setup with wireless access as well, if possible at all?)
Did I just describe port forwarding? I don't know where this was heading.
