Most connections nowdays between either DB2 Connect client or iSeries
Access client and DB2 UDB for iSeries server are TCP/IP. You can use
APPC for DB2 Connect if you like. DB2 Connect flows DRDA datastream
while iSeries Access flows a protocol unique to iSeries.

I can't offer any comparative info about efficiency of one vs the other.
You might ask over on the newsgroup, as a
number of iSeries customers follow that.

More info here about configuring for DB2 Connect (using DRDA) is in the
Distributed Database Programming book:

More info about using iSeries Access is in the InfoCenter:
