Not in Firebird it aint. :)

Check whether the client machine's HOSTS file has an entry for the server, viz., my NT workstation client sees the Linux ibserver as coolduck #firebird server

make sure you have TCP/IP at the top of your client machine's protocol stack (delete netbeui and ipx/sx if you aren't using them)

use the correct syntax for the connection string, viz.


I don't know ASA but does it do something screwy with directory paths?
d:\ must be a physically defined drive on the server machine (logical drive OK).
don't try to connect to a mapped drive
