You will have some docs and utilities to help you on this journey:

> 1) (...) I'll test a tunneling software (...)
If you will try ZeBeDee, I already made a document to explain the basic
installation. I have send this to Pavel & Paul, so it will be in IBPhoenix &
firebirdsql in a few days. If you are going to install your application on
the workstations, and the Firebird client, you will notice that it's very
easy to install ZeBeDee in a go.

Also you can try iboconsvc utility to track IP's. I don't remember where to
get it (try google) but I've easily modify it to allow only connections from
some dedicated IP's. This could help on brute force atacks.
