Subject Re: What is the difference between these connection strings?
Thanks again Helen:) Now I feel kinda embarassed because I should check it before creating this topic, but for the other hand..I wouldn't get Dmitry's attention;) so..I will use the occasion and ask:

Dmitry, few years ago there was a rumour that connecting through TCP/IP was slower than through XNET / pipes. Could you clarify on this? Is there any difference in terms of performance when retrieving/inserting data from/to database depending on the protocol?
