"true local access" means you can only connect to databases residing on the
local machine, and only from the process that loaded the DLL. That is, the
embedded server will not accept connections from clients running on another
machine (or running as other processes on the same machine).

However, the embedded server can make remote connections to other Firebird
servers, and act as a client to them (which is very cool).
