This looks like you can reach the remote computer, but the server isn't
running. Have you tried to connect to the servers locally?

I it works, check wheter there is some software firewall on the server
that prevents remote connections.

Firebird uses TCP port 3050 by default, you can try to telnet to that
port to see whether you get some reply. Or try running netstat on server
to see wheter the port is open.
