Thanks for the response. 

We have tried the PacketSize option using following:

Case 1 :
ODBCConfig --> User DSN --> Configure --> "We entered 512 against

Case 2 :
We used following connecting string in our code (here we did not specify
PacketSize using ODBCConfig):
"DRIVER=FreeTDS; SERVER=ftcpu1164; DATABASE=pubs; UID=<user name>;
PWD=<password>; PacketSize=512"

In both the above cases we did not see any performance difference. The
same result was observed when we did not specify PacketSize in both the
above cases.

Please suggest Thanks in Advance

Thanks & best regards,

It's free software, yaar!  

The only option that even *might* affect performance is PacketSize.  The
optimal size depends on the network and the application.
