Subject Re: Target Machine actively refused it
Author Adam
When you attempt to connect to a port on a win2003 machine which
doesn't have something listening to it, you get an active refusal.
The easiest way to test is to type

"telnet localhost 3050"

in a dos box. If the box goes blank, the connection was successful.
Otherwise, you will get an error.

10053 and 10054 are Winsock Error messages.

For detailed information on these two messages, check out:

My guess is that something is causing Firebird to crash. If you
switch off the Guardian, you will probably find it never recovers
itself. Obviously, any connections to FB are forcibly closed (winsock
10054) when this happens, and no connections can be made to 3050
until FB is restarted by the guardian.

I can't tell you what would crash Firebird. Possibly a rogue UDF or a
corrupt fdb file, but I hope I was of some help.
