Informix Over WAN

Informix Over WAN

Informix Over WAN

Has anybody tried running informix clients over a wide area network ? We have a site with Informix Clients (Win 95) connecting to an Informix online 7.3 Database (unix) through cisco routers across a 64k link. We tested the network and Ping times appear to be ok and we have tried ping packets up to 1k. But response times for small database requests appear very slow. (compared with Oracle over a similiar network). In our own office I have tried running informix through a proxy (wingate 1.3) over a 33k modem and I seem to get a similar effect,this could be a red herring though!. If I run an informix client through a modem (33k, ras) to the database performance is reasonable for line speed much better that accros the 64k links.
I have looked through microsofts TCP/IP registry settings (Q158474) but cannot see anything that would help.

Does anybody out their run informix wide area ?. Anybody have any suggestions ? Maybe even windows 95 networking settings
