Lester: give it a try. If you want I can email the author about that
IE/Nescape problem.

( I remember that you mention that one of your clients use slow links ( 64Kb
frame really with IP encapsulate, am I wrong? ). In this case, you will have
a good improvement using just the IP compression capabilities, not the
security ones.)

For the beginning, I think that Firebird should have compression built in.
Of course that are lot's of hardware that do this, but it's one thing that
PostreSQL has, and it make a difference when you use the internet.

[Helen, before you put that beautiful head on and kick us out of here - I
think this isn't off topic, because FB does not have any kind of IP
compression/encryption build in and this could make a difference in internet

I did test another tools to achieve better performance on the internet and
on slow links. One of my clients had a 128Kb to connect a remote office with
8 workstations, and it's better now using a cheaper 64Kb line and ZeBeDee.

Does anyone tried another IP compression/encryption that could share with
