Subject Problem with ODBC connection to Linux FB server
Author alex_skopal
I have installed Mandrake Linux 10 and Firebird SS 1.5. On this
machine I can connect to database and work with it.

When I try to connect through ODBC from another machine (Win 98) I
always obtain after 1 minute wait time message "Unable to complete
network request to host "". Failed to establish
connection. unknown Win32 error 10060"

Through the same ODBC client I can connect to another Firebird
on Win XP without problems.

I think the problem is somwhere on server side. In /etc/services
exists gds_db 3050/tcp. First I tried to establish connection with
firewall set to allow 3050/tcp then without firewall but without

One more thing - ftp connection to this Linux server works OK.

Can anybody help me?
