Yes, make sure the server is listening on port 3050.

If the server is Windows NT, 2K or XP, your connection string will be:\databases\mydatabase.gdb

If it is a Linux server, the connection string will be:

Make sure that you have an entry in the client's HOSTS file, consisting of the IP address of the server followed by whitespace followed by (or whatever it is called). If it doesn't have a name, make one up.

Test it with ping first to make sure the server is there. (ping from the console display or the Run.. box)
