A system with a plurality of devices compatible with the Fiber Channel Protocol, with at least one initiator/originator and one target/responder. The initiator/originator is provided with the capability to send both data and command frames to the target/responder to increase write performance. The target/responder allocates a portion of its Responder-Exchange-Identifiers for the write use of the initiator/originator, which manages the use of these identifiers.
