You need to put the port number in your connection string:

Say you have fb_db/tcp 3051 in Services..
Client connection request is


But, really, you want iboconsole to use the firebird client, not the
interbase one. So grab the iboconsole source from Lorenzo's site, open it
up in Delphi and add a new unit similar to the one named IB_Session511.pas
in your IBO root directory, replacing the dll name with whatever your
firebird client is called (fbclient.dll?). Perhaps rename the project to
keep it separate, and just recompile it.
