AFAIR, connected user (not firebird user but windows user) has to
have file permissions on security.fdb. I.e. if you connecting from
client computer where user1 is logged in, user1 on server should be
able to read and write databases files.
Try to put security.fdb and database to FAT where ACLs aren't
