These are the same, but I don't think Helen was talking about localhost
when she mentioned local connection. Remember that there is a local
protocol for connection to Interbase and Firebird which is different than
using the TCP/IP protocol to connect. For the local protocol, you simply
need to provide the pathname of the database(i.e.: c:\aaa\wa.gdb) as the
connection string.
