Subject Re: Connection refused on Server
Author colincoleman2002
If I connect with Ibexperts using a local connection Eg
d:\data\database.gdb it works fine, if i try to connect
using "LOCALHOST" as the server name it fails to connect, the same
as if i connect using the construct MYSERVER:D:\data\database.gdb

As the system has working fine (ON TCP OVER LOCAL NETWORK) for about
4 weeks now, i suspect the answer is NOT one of the following

**Firebird will not work uder windows 2003 serever
**Will not work under ISA server
**Will not work when a Virus protection program is in the building
**Will not work if its raining outside.

I have just run netstat -a and cant see the gds_db line in the file
anymore where it was this morning, but that didnt seem to make any
difference as when it was there it still didnt connect over the TCP

Are there any debugging tools available to trace what maybe
happening ?
