Slow connections on Windows 2003 with IB < 7.1 and FB < 1.5
is a known issue.

One trick that might help is to change on OS setting, namely
changing CPU usage optimized to applications and not service,
but people have reported that sometimes it helps and sometimes

Both InterBase 7.1 and Firebird 1.5 are running fine on
Windows 2003.
