Subject Working with XP's Offline Files
Author Tobias Giesen

I have encountered a curious phenomenon today ...

I have a network drive mapped as X: on my Windows XP laptop. It contains
the Firebird data files from a server. When I go home, I want to be able
to continue using these files thru XP's function "Make Available

I have a local Firebird server on the laptop. However, when I am offline
and I try to make a local connection to database files on drive X:,
Firebird doesn't accept them as local files but attempts to connect to
the remote server. So the attempt fails even though XP has made the
files available locally.

Is there a way to locally connect to files "Made Available Offline"?

Thanks for any hints!
