Thank you for contacting us.
By default Telerik DataAccess uses its own connection pool
,so there should not be connection problems when using both Telerik DataAccess and ADO.Net. That being said, please note that Telerik DataAccess provides its own low level ADO API
that gives you the same general functionality as ADO.Net. We recommend you consider using it in case it covers the requirements of your scenario.
I hope this helps. Should you have further questions feel free to post at our forums again.
