Subject Re: Connection refused on Server
Author colincoleman2002
Yes this is the main company server and nobody has any problems,
Except little ol'e me trying to get Firebird to service requests
over TCP on port 3050.

Evrything else works all the VPN clints are connecting from outside
to in, and visa versa, web servers are running 100%, the only thing
that aint working is remote connections INTO the server on port 3050
to firebird.

Can I use some "Telnet" type program to try and ask the server if
firebird is awake and listening.

If i run netstat -a now it has a line that says

TCP cbl01:1080 cbl01.cbl.local:0 LISTENING
TCP cbl01:1745 cbl01.cbl.local:0 LISTENING
TCP cbl01:3025 cbl01.cbl.local:ldap CLOSE_WAIT
TCP cbl01:3048 cbl01.cbl.local:ldap ESTABLISHED
TCP cbl01:3050 cbl01.cbl.local:1025 ESTABLISHED
TCP cbl01:3051 cbl01.cbl.local:1025 ESTABLISHED
TCP cbl01:3064 cbl01.cbl.local:3268 ESTABLISHED
TCP cbl01:3065 cbl01.cbl.local:ldap ESTABLISHED

This looks like its actually got a connection from someone and is
running, am i correct?
