Subject Re: [firebird-support] Question about connection with the network cable disconected
Author unordained
I'm assuming you're trying to connect to a local database; what is your connection string? If
something other than, you might consider the following:

a) Windows XP SP2 changed localhost connections such that ip addresses other than would
not work (for whatever reason)?
b) Operating system deciding that with a cable unplugged, its outside IP address no longer makes
sense and is therefore not routable?

You might take your connection string and see if ping (and other services like ssh/ftp/telnet)
works with it regardless of the cable being in or not. That might help narrow down the list of
possible problems. If those service act the same way, consider a different connection string (like
the one above.)
