Question:It takes about 20 to 30 seconds to connect to an Interbase server running on a box with Windows 2003 Server. The same happens on Windows ME but not on other operating systems such as Windows XP or Windows 2000 Server. I'm using InterBase 5.6
Answer:It's a known issue that versions prior to 7.1 do have a bad connect/disconnect behaviour on Windows 2003 Server.
The solution is to upgrade to InterBase 7.1 or avoid using Windows 2003 Server if you are stuck with InterBase 5.6.
If you are stuck with both, then turn off system restore and see if that solves the problem. Microsoft
introduced a bug in XP that causes slow connections. This might apply to Windows 2003 Server as well.
