Subject RE: [ib-support] Connect to Firebird from Windows
Author Martyn Shiner

Thanks for your previous post.

OK - so I have firebird 6 on my linux and windoze PCs. Using IBaccess I can
now "see" the server from the windoze pc. Also if I telnet from windoze to
linux and do netstat -an | grep 3050
I get this :

tcp 0 0* LISTEN
tcp 0 0

From this I conclude that the server on linux is up an listening and I can
connect.... BUT I still can't open up the employee database in the examples
directory on the linux server. All I get is a message saying IBaccess is
unable to complete the network request to host and there is an error reading
data from the connection.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
