Subject connection rejected by remote interface
Author Edwin Pratomo

I've been scratching my head because of this:
# gfix -sweep /var/fb/data/test.gdb
connection rejected by remote interface

This happens on one of three firebird-SS installation on Linux machines.
At first I thought probably it was a bug in a version of gfix, so I tried
several versions of firebird (1.00, 1.02, 1.03), but still no luck.
I have also checked the iptables in case it affects it, but even with no
restriction applied, I still get the same error.

Trying with -user and -password, I got:
# gfix -user sysdba -password masterkey -sweep /var/fb/data/test.gdb
incompatible switch combination
please retry, specifying an option
bla bla bla..

Checking in /opt/interbase/interbase.log, I just got:
SERVER/process_packet: connection rejected for root

Not very useful. there is nothing in syslog.

any hint, help?
