This is probably a naive question, but I've searched the posts and I can't find the answer, and since I've never used the server version...

If I have a FM server database and have scripts that invoke applescripts (or VBscripts) where does the script run, on the server or on the FM client machine?

If we had a server database of 2-4GB, how much data gets transfered across our LAN?

Thanks I suspected as much but could not find it mentioned explicitly.

Unfortunately I use Applescript to call a UNIX application via a shell script. Since I have no control over the clients this kills this idea I think. :)

In general, the only information transferred is the data that's required for the particular layouts and records that are being accessed.

With Server running in a fast network (100Mb or faster), the client experience is similar to what you'd get running the files stand-alone.

Running over a WAN, performance is noticably slower with certain operations, depending primarily on the upload speed of the host network and the download speed of the client network.
