I have this curious issue connecting to FB 2.5 on 32-bit Windows 7 using the JDBC driver 2.1.6 (on Sun JDK 1.6.23) from Maven repo.

The connection works when I use the following JDBC URL:

The connection fails when I use the one below:
The error I get is this:
GDS Exception. 335544721. Unable to complete network request to host "D".

What am I missing/doing wrong? Is it compulsory to provide host[:port] in the URL? The FAQ doesn't seem to say so:

However in the entire FAQ there isn't a single example that doesn't provide the "host" information in the URL.
