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

The server is a test machine with minimal traffic. It runs apache, mysql,
samba and now firebird - but myself and one other person are really the only
people who log in for development testing and playing <g>. We have a mix of
clients (Win 98/ME and 2K) but I'm currently only testing FB against the win
98 machine for personal convenience(although the Win ME and 2k clients had
the same problem).

There is no firewall or backup stuff running that could conflict - so I'm a
bit stumped.

I'm not convinced the two entries are connected aty all (104 and server

What is the server used for and how many users are in past 20:00.

Is there any kind of house keeping going on after hours, e.g. backup (IB or
OS), sweeps, defrag, whatever?

if the DB is corrupt, you can get abends during the backup.

Does it happen at the same time every night?
