The dialect between the client and the
server is quite "chatty" so it isn't likely that FB3 wire compression
will help tremendously. Normally someone would use a custom data provider and
custom data client that is more optimized for low latency and low bandwidth
connections. Client/server architecture is designed more with a LAN
environment in mind.
You should look into setting them up with the ability to cache the schema data locally. This would save on their startup time.
TIB_Connection has a property called SchemaCacheDir that will specify a location where these are stored. If you do an update to your database, just delete the files there and they will automatically regenerated the next time the application runs.
Hope this helps,

We have a customer who really wants to run our application over a VPN, but even with a small database it takes +4 minutes to get a open up our application. He says it runs fine once it gets going.
Can anyone tell me if FB 3.x would be any quicker?
