If you are using Firebird 1.5, you might want to check out
the parameter RemoteBindAddress in firebird.conf.

# Allows incoming connections to be bound to the IP address of a
# specific network card. It enables rejection of incoming connections
# through any other network interface except this one. By default,
# connections from any available network interface are allowed.
# Type: string
#RemoteBindAddress =
