> Each client thread
Frequently using threads result from a misconception about using TCP/IP,
specially with asynchronous component such as ICS. You don't need
multithreading to support a large number of concurrent users ! You _may_
need multithreading for your dataprocessing if it is blocking (a SQL request
is most of the time blocking).

Decompress/decrypt either on the fly in the OnDataAvailable event or
decompress/decrypt once you received the complete data, just before updating
your database. If you have a streaming decompression/decryption library,
then on the fly is easy. Otherwise, decompress once you get everything.

It depends on the client behaviour and how many simultaneous clients you
have. You may connect to the DB when the client connect and disconnect when
the client disconnect. Or you may have a kind of connection pool and pick a
connection when you need it.
btw: Please use a subject with as much meaning as possible.
