How much bandwidth does the Seti at Home application typically use while it is running, other than the initial download of whatever task it is processing?

In other words, once Seti at Home downloads a specific problem to work on, does it have to keep sending a lot of traffic back and forth to its main server? And, if so, what sort of percentage of my capacity is it likely to be using?

Thanks,

-Danny.

In other words, hardly anything significant. <g>

Thanks.
