Performance KM repository - Filesystem vs. WebDAV


I'm a newbie to KM repositories so I hope this question makes sense.

I've got 2 Filesystem Repositories in my KM. One server is remote and reachable via a 4 MBit/s cable, the other one is located within the intranet.

When I browse both filesystem in EP, the response time of the intranet server filesystem is acceptable, whereas the response time of the remote filesystem is very slow.

So far not astonishing. But when I browse both filesystems via Windows Explorer both have nearly the same performance (also 4 MBit/s vs Intranet).

My question:

1) What could be the reason for that? Is it maybe a different protocol?

2) Would it maybe help if I try to embed the remote filesystem via WebDAV repository?

3) What exactly are the differences between WebDAV repository and filesystem Repository? Regarding performance and functioanlity!

4) Is it possible to use the filesystem via WebDAV and also make changes directly on the fileystem?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.
