Thanks, Mark - that clarifies things. It should probably have occurred
to me that it was so easy.

So "Test Connection" to a Firebird 1.5 via TCP/IP works fine.

jdbc:firebirdsql:localhost/3050:test ("test" is an alias to a path)

However, when trying to expand any of the nodes below Schemas/SYSTEM or
Schemas/USER, I'm seeing:

org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBSQLException: GDS Exception. 335544721. Unable
to complete network request to host "". Reason: Unable to complete
network request to host "".

After reading about JDBC-98 [1], I tried another connection string and
could expand all the nodes and get all the info about tables and other

jdbc:firebirdsql: (this works!)

Now I find that the localhost connection string also works. Don't know
why I got the exception in the first place.
