Subject Firebird Refusing connections
Author Mike Harbison
Has anyone experienced a problem where Firebird refuses new connections?
I have this sporadic problem where Firebird will not accept any new
connections for 1-3 minutes. Those minutes seem like a eternity when
business stops. The Firebird logs don't report any problems and nothing
is generated in the event viewer.

I am running Firebird 1.5 on a Windows 2000 Server (Cluster).

I appreciate any feedback. The error I have is the following: (names
have been altered)

Message: Database Connection Failure, DB: xxx.GDB.

Exception Error Message:
Unable to complete network request to host "MACHINE".
Failed to establish a connection.
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused

Thank you,
