Subject [firebird-support] Dual FB/IB access
Author Paul Hope

I am just dipping my toe into FB and need to have access to both IB5.6 and

I have installed FB1.5 on the same server (Win 2K server) as IB and set the
config file to use port 3060.
I have put an entry in my services file of fb_gdb 3060/tcp.

I have many projects on my client machine which need to be migrated over to
FB. They are all written in Delphi6 and use IBO to access FB. All the
projects share a number of core units and have their own special ones. I
think I remember seeing a message from Helen on the IBO newsgroup saying
that I can place some IBO source file in the project directory and modify it
to point IBO at the new port. I'm assuming that if I do this and add
gds32.dll and fbclient.dll to the project directory then that project will
connect to FB?

My next problem is IB manager from EMS. Has anyone succeeded in setting it
up for dual access? (Yes I have asked EMS but havn't had a workable reply
so thought I would ask here as well ;-)) .
