The way we do it is with a little utility on the machine that the
firebird server is on, that allows a backup path to be chosen and
saves the backup path into an ini file. Then we have our software look
this ini file up and find out what the path is, We have another ini
file entry on the client machine to do that You still need some
intervention on the server machine, but it works out OK for us.

Another option would be to write a TCP enabled application that would
allow the client to enumerate through the directories on the server...
This is where I wanted to head in our application, but we ended up
just looking up the ini file.
