Subject Target Machine actively refused it
Hi List,

Strange problem.

We have Firebird SS 1.0 6.2.794 with Guardian running on a twin processor Windows 2003 server.
we have CPU_AFFINITY set to 2

All clients are able to connect and function properly.

Intermittently the clients will freeze. (Stop responding). At this time new clients cannot connect.
During this time when we try to connect using a debugger we get a message
"No Connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"
This happens on other machines on the network as well as the machine on which Firebird Server (Windows 2003) is running.

Our clients are written using Delphi and IBO

Sometimes after sometime the problem will get solved on its own.
However if we restart Firebird Server the problem is definetely solved and clients are able to work.

This happens about 3 to 4 times a day. During this time the Interbase .log on both client and server is showing 10054 and 10053 errors

At this time if we check in task manager the CPU activity is not more than 20 to 25% and the memory usage is also quite reasonable

Can anybody give me some idea of what the problem could be
