Just a shot in the dark.

Once upon a time ago, I was experiencing a very slow gbak process when I
run gbak on my machine and the database on a server in my lan, If I run
gbak directly on the server the speed diference is huge (a small
diference I expected because of the lan trafic).

Nigel suggested me to turn off the auto negotiation link speedy on my
windows box and try to force it manually.

First I tried 100mpbs/full duplex the speed was slow too

then I tried 100mpbs/half duplex the speed was increased a *lot*

My switch is 100mpbs/full duplex, I dont know why it is slow than half
duplex, but something is wrong with full duplex.

Give it a try.

see you !
