Make sure that you AV package isn't scanning network drives on the client
machine (I presume by what you've said, that your running the exe file of
your program from the server that houses the db) and that the av on the
server isn't scanning the exe file or the db.

Subject: [firebird-support] App Is Very Slow When Client Runs It From
Server. ..

Server: XP Pro, Client: XP Home, FB 1.5.2, ZStyle Ibole.dll OLE provider,
Peer-to-peer Client pings server by name successfully (fast) Client executes
"TELNET server_name 3050" successfully. The screen goes black, which is
what I was told is successful.
However, it fails "TELNET server_name GDS_DB".
Firebird.conf file: DATABASES = Full
Aliases.conf holds DATA SOURCE definitions for my connection string.
No DSN's are defined on client or server for this app.
Server IPO address is NOT defined in client HOSTS file, because the app
needs to be able to find a server with a dynamic IP address.
BTW, just for fun, I DID define the server's IP address in the client HOSTS
file and it didn't help at all.
The EXE runs just fine from the client machine.
However, it runs about 30 times slower (but does run) if the client runs the
EXE from the server.

I've been told by the boss that it must run on the server.
Any ideas?
