I have since switched to Srp entirely. I see you can use Legacy with the new
security database. I was already using a security3.fdb, but seems it was using
old tables. That still worked fine with Flamerobin as it did when I switched to

I cannot get Flamerobine to replicate the connection issues. I tested a few
times. I changed the order put Srp,Legacy, then Legacy, Srp, or just Legacy,
all worked fine for Flamerobin. Once I switched over to Srp, and disabled
legacy entirely. Flamerobin continued to work.

I am on Gentoo so I packaged both Firebird and Flamerobin on
Gentoo. I know what I have installed. I have not had Firebird 2.5 on my laptop
or desktop for over a year. There is NO chance Flamerobin was using an older
version. The packages are not slotted, one will flat out remove the other.

I never changed any settings on my desktop or laptop. I simply changed
settings on the server. At no time did Flamerobin have issues connecting to
Firebird 3. Either via Legacy or Srp, no matter the order or which was in use,
new security database or legacy tables.
