I doubt it. Even in a 10MBits lan.

[ Maybe if you have some big querys for a report that return some big
varchar fields. But I doubt it. ]

What this tool does is listening to IP packets, and try to compress them. If
you have fewer packets to transfer between the server and the client, the
time spend in the compression process will kill any performance - for the
contrary, you can have a decrease of performance.

You can use ZeBeDee for encription over the wire in your local LAN, but
there are very few instalations that need to be wire-encripted 'in house'.

But, if your LAN is connected to remote offices using 32Kb links, for
example, you can notice some improvements, especially in big reports.
