Hi Dietrich,

thanks for your answer.

I'm using 'local interbase' 5.5 on windows. This is the local interbase that
came with C++ Builder 5 Pro. I guess this uses the local protocol right? Also,
I downloaded the latest binaries for win32 from the interbase website - how
does one run this in 'local' mode/protocol?

Thanks again - Adrian.
