Your connection string is something like:
"localhost:c:\mydir\mydatabase.fdb" ?

The unable to complete network request to localhost, let me supose you
run the FB server on the same machine that his application are running
from right ?

This error is tipical when the FB server are not running on the
especified machine, or if it is running but the machine is protected by
a firewall.

If you prefer contact me privately in portuguese and I can try to help

até mais...
