Do keep in mind that IBO will fetch the database's meta-data when
connecting. And, that might be the delay that you are experiencing at
connection time. With IBO, you can tell IBO to use a local schema
cache to store the metadata, so that IBO will not have to query the
server for it. Also, Firebird's wire protocol can be quite verbose,
and you are not telling us what is the internet connection speed.
