Subject Re: [firebird-support] Re: Users and DB access with FB on web server
Hi Milan,

----- Original Message -----
I'd suggest the ISP *not* to do this. It opens a hole in security since
Firebird's protocol goes unencrypted.

Could you elaborate on the hole that is opened? for many years I have used direct connection over
internet without (*touch wood*) a problem to date.

That said I can see the benefit of Zebedee (or similar products) but I should imagine it will be an
optional extra from ISP's rather than the norm. I'm not aware of many ISP's who use this type of
method for remote access to FB, IB, MySQL or SQL Server.
