Subject Re: [ib-support] JDBC Woes

Have you found
Start -> Programs -> InterBase InterClient -> InterServer ? The InterServer
is another process (can run as a service) which allows communication (I
think) between the Java code and the InterBase / Firebird server.

After that, the InterClient docs guide you through testing the connection.

PS: You might also want to check the IB-Java list archives on Yahoo.
