Everytime I launch Eye-Fi manager, it routes me to http://manage.eye.fi in a browser. Nothing is working if I disconnect my wifi hotspot from the internet. I would expect it to work, but it doesn't. That's why I am confused of how it supposed to work. So where is that Relayed Upload setting you were referring to? Is that a settin from the Eye-fi manager or the firewall/router setting? Maybe that's turned on by default, but I certainly do want that to be off.
As for the thumbnails, I am pretty sure they're not coming from my local computer because I can see them from the "completed upload" notification email, and when I login to manager.eye.fi away from home network(iphone using 3G), I am still able to see the thumbnails images.
so what am I missing here?

And why Eye-Fi keeps a copy of everything I uploaded in their server? I don't like it even if they just keep thumbnails? If that's the case, nobody concern about privacy? Can someone tell me how the Eye-Fi work behind the scene??

Then from the PC its sent up to the relay servers to go out where ever it needs to go. If no local eye-fi center PC found it then would attempt direct upload to the online relay.
