Subject Connection problem
Author Ernesto Cullen
I have heard of a problem from a friend of mine. She has two machines, one acting as a Server with Interbase 6.01 and the other as client. She has only TCP/IP protocol installed

from the client, it takes about 2 seconds to get connected, and as long as 30 (!) seconds to get some query result.
Now, if she use


as database name, it takes about 0.6 sec. to get connected, and faster query response times.

Now, as I understand it, the first is the correct TCP/IP sintaxis; the second is a kind of 'hybrid' of TCP and NETBEUI. Is does correct or am I misunderstanding something?

Thanks in advance
