Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't know if it really applies to
Windows that easily.

I don't know what kind of firewall they have on the server, but they
seem to be knowledgeable about the server. But given the nature of the
error(bind error), I'm not sure if the firewall has anything to do
with it. My customer was able to get it working a gain after 2
reboots, after I sent my first message. But, looking through the
firebird.log, they have a history of this happening, but it was the
first time that it was doing it very frequently for 2 days(and it was
the first time they reported the problem to us). The user that
reported the problem today, was using our software via a terminal
session(which is run on the same server as Firebird is installed).
It's our first customer that is reporting this problem, and for me
it's the first time I see it.

While they have everything running again, I'm almost waiting for the
next time it happens to them.
