Asunto: [firebird-support] How to connect over network?


I'm trying to connect to a database running Firebird 1.5 as an
application on a remote computer, running Windows 98 SE.

My client machine is running Windows 2000.

Do you have to shut down the Firebird server running on Windows 2000?
Pinging the machine shows that the connection exists. I've tried
connecting to the database with IB Expert, giving the IP address of
the remote computer.

When I try to connect I get the following error:

"Unsuccessful execution caused by a system error that precludes
successful execution of subsequent statements. I/O error for
file 'g:\totalbook\totalbook.fdb'. Error while trying to open file.
The device is not ready."

Drive G is networked.

Any ideas why it won't connect??
