The port number is 3050, not 350.

I don't know what you mean here.

To see which ports are listening, run

netstat -natu

If the server is running and the port is open, you should see it listening
on the host's local address.

You can also check whether the server process is actually running at all, using
ps -aux | grep fb

Yes, look at the /etc/services file using cat. At or near the end you
should see the entry
gds_db 3050/tcp # FirebirdSQL Database Remote Protocol

I don't know what else to suggest, except to get hold of some documentation
material about Linux and TCP/IP (i.o.w., keep googling!)
