This is all very informative, except it doesn't tell us how to do it. :-)
Anybody got any tips for those of us who need to do it? The port issue
seems to have been well explained, but can anyone explain the other issues
or give any tips on how to handle it?

I am in the situation of having recently converted my code to IBO for use
with FB. Our production systems run on IB 6.02. So if I can't get this
right, I need to set up a physically separate machine for either DEV or
PROD development work.
