I think you will need to get a little bit more information about their
setup. I can't locate error numbers 27014 or 27013 as known Microsoft
networking errors. And Firebird no longer needs an entry in the services
database - it should default to 3050 if an entry isn't found. (And it
ought not throw a fit if it can't find the services database.)

Where/when is the error thrown? When the server starts? When the client
app tries to connect?
