I do. note that I cannot connect even as root user from the command when
trying to connect via TCP/IP.

I didn't notice the isql-db binary before and had only been using
the 'old' isql binary found in the firebird2/bin/ dir ... apparently
the 'old' binary is a symlink to the isql-fb binary....

to reiterate, the following works:

isql-fb -user SYSDBA -password XXXXXXXX emp

but this does not (as root or any other user):

isql-fb -user SYSDBA -password XXXXXXXX localhost:emp

(where 'emp' is a defined alias to the example employee.gdb)

thanks for everyones efforts so far ...
