@Arrowhead-IT It speeds up a fast connection because there’s additional bandwidth to use that wouldn’t otherwise be used. On a 1Mb connection, that is not the issue - there simply isn’t any more bandwidth available to use.
@Ph3noM Fog doesn’t set a DB password - if fog sets up the DB on a new server, it’s left blank. The installer (at least in FOG 1.3.0 beta) asks you for a DB password just in case you set one in the back end. And of course if that’s the case (and 99% of the time it is) then the field in /opt/fog/.fogsettings would be blank as well.
