Hi there,

I'm looking at using SSL over TCP/IP port 1433 to connect to a database as
the database server and client lie on opposite sides of a not so trusty
network. There are a couple of questions I cant seem to get answered.

Is this a viable idea ?
What is the performance impact of using SSL with MSSQL vs a non-encryped
connection ?
By what size (10% 20% 30% ??) does SSL increase the size of the network
traffic sent
to and from the database server?
Anyone had any serious problems using SSL ?

I plan on using the ADODB.Stream component to transport XML streams between
sever and client.

Thanks in advance
