You could start by including the -b[ackup] switch in the command; and (if
you are doing the backup locally) use the service manager if you need to
perform the backup while xinetd clients are connected.

If the ISC_USER and ISC_PASSWORD variables are not available in your shell,

As to what is causing the crash, I wonder whether you are using the right
version of gbak. Fb 1.5 has its default root in /opt/firebird and gbak
expects to be run in /opt/firebird/bin... The location /usr/local/bin does
not look to me like a Firebird bin directory.

/opt/firebird/bin/gbak -b -se /usr/opt/db/proxy.fdb
