Subject Connection problem
Author Alexander Tabakov
Maybe it is a little off topic but here's my problem.

I have a Windows NT box trying to connect to a Firebird database which is behind NAT
using a mapped port.

Connection string:

The following error occurs:

"Unsuccessful execution caused by a system error that precludes
successful execution of subsequent statements.
Unable to complete network request to host "".
-Failed to locate host machine.
-Undefined service 10000/tcp."

10000 is the mapped port number. There is a row: "some_svc 10000/tcp"
in %WinDir%\System32\drivers\etc\services file.

This happend only on NT. Clients running on Win2000/XP connect just fine.

Any ideas?
