I have been pestering Ann Harrison to custom build me one of these. I think
there would be a great market for an "Internet capable" version of Firebird.
ISP's ought to be clamoring for it! But, you are certainly right that so far
you would have to be crazy to open your InterBase port 3050 to the world
wide web.

It shouldn't take all that much to tighten things up here. I anxiously await
this coming to pass.
