I noticed in the documentation that there is a setting in the ADS.INI that
will force Advantage to use the IPX internet protcol when both IPX and IP
are available. We have had multiple clients complain that seeking is dog
slow. However, other clients (and the devs) have no speed issues. The only
thing that we have been able to come up with is when we installed IPX on
some of the clients the speed issues were resolved. However this hasnt
worked for everyone and we wanted to try to force Advantage to use IPX and
see if that resolved the issues on the other clients. But the only way that
we can think of to be sure which protocol it is using is via the ADS.INI
file. The problem is the devs cannot find where this file is installed or
where it needs to be installed so that the program will use that INI file.

Thanks in advance,
Trevor

The settings for the ADS.INI set the default protocol, but it doesn't force
the client to only use this protocol. IOW, it will try IPX first. If it
can't use it, it will go to IP. The ADS.INI is just a text file that can be
put in with your executable. It just needs to be in the path (exe path or
windows or system directories). You might also check out the "Registry
Settings that effect Advantage Communication" section of the help file.
This will actually force the protocol, not just set the default.

I'd recommend packing the database tables and looking in the error log to
address possible slow seek operations.
