I don't know whether this will result in a solution but...

From what have they installed IB Server on the Win2K machines?

I remember (waaaaay back) when IB 5.0 was released, we had an almost completely parallel etiology when 5.0 was installed on Win95 machines and NT 4 machine - except we got a Dr Watson on the NT 4 machines when attempting to connect to a database.

The "cure" came a few days later, when the Borland agent supplied IB 5.1.1. The Dr Watson problem on the NT machine went away... Note, I never did see IB 5.1.

The replacement version of ibserver.exe was timestamped 15-MAR-1998 and had the version number W1-V5.1.1.680. I'm afraid I don't have the client program that shipped with that.
