A lot of things aren't clear here.

What version of Firebird are you talking about?
What version of client are you talking about?
What *model* of Firebird are you talking about? (Classic/SS?)
How does the service normally start?
What means are you using, respectively, to stop and restart the server?
What kind of user are you when you do this?
Are you saying that tcp/ip connection stops permanently when you do this?
