FB uses by default port 3050 there is no necessity to specify it on the
services files anymore

This is part of the Firebird Client Install, not part of the ODBC driver

Because it's responsability of the client install software not the ODBC
driver responsability :-)

Do you have any problems with it ?

If you have problems try posting in the FB-ODBC-Devel list, Vladimir has
an incredible ability to fix problems lightning fast !
Last message I saw from him he is saying that is on a business trip, but
I think he comes back soon...
