If you installed RC 4 then you installed Classic. Classic doesn't use fbmgr.

Classic starts one fb_inet_server process for each connection. If there are
no connections, then xinetd is listening for connection requests but no
Firebird server is actually running.

To start a process, log in. To end a process, log out. To force a process
to end, get its PID from top and issue a kill -9 thatpid
