Subject Windows Update causes Java Intebase to fail
Author Stephen Searfoss
We have an application that uses Java 1.3 with the
Firebird client and Interbase 6.

We now are up to three customers who report that after
a Windows upgrade in the last two weeks our
application can no longer access Interbase via
Firebird client.

Even with firewall off it does not work.

Anyone have this problem and know a solution?

If not at least you are advised of a potential
