This error is reported by the Firebird server, so I don't think you are
connecting to a Firebird database at all. What happens if you connect to
this Firebird server and database using Flamerobin?

Note that edb is also not a common extension for Firebird databases, it
is either FDB, or - historically - GDB.

What is this main program? Are you sure it is actually using Firebird?
