OK, I guess I'm not entirely clear on what you mean by a network app.
If you run Classic on the system with the database, your local clients
will make a TCP loopback connection while your remote clients make a
remote TCP connection, both types of clients using the same client
library. On Linux, your local clients would like to a different library
- same interface, just a different library - and make local connections.
