Driver opens socket connection using standard Java capabilities, so it
should not be a problem then. Try to write small Java application to open
connection using plain Java client sockets. If it wokrs, and JayBird still
does not, I have no idea :(

Also try following URL (you need jaybird.dll for this, that's type 2 JDBC

Do you try

CONNECT 'localhost:e:/data/data.gdb' USER 'sysdba' PASSWORD 'masterkey';

or just

CONNECT 'e:/data/data.gdb' USER 'sysdba' PASSWORD 'masterkey';

If latter, you connect to the server using IPC, network connection is not
used there.
