Subject Can't connect to Classic Server 1.5.2
Author Thomas Steinmaurer

I'm having a hard time connecting to a locally running Classic Server
1.5.2 on a particular Windows XP Prof. SP2 machine. No difference if
there is a local firewall running or not.

I've installed Classic as a service by using the install_classic.bat
script. After that, I get one entry in firebird.log

TOMSTONE (Client) Wed Nov 30 22:47:50 2005
Guardian starting: c:\Programme\Firebird\Firebird_152_3050\bin\fbserver.exe

Dunno if this matters, but it shows fbserver.exe (SuperServer).

TCPView shows me one process fb_inet_server.exe listening on port 3050

I'm trying to connect with isql:

Use CONNECT or CREATE DATABASE to specify a database
SQL> connect localhost:toursim.fdb user tourism password tourism;
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902

Unable to complete network request to host "localhost".
-Failed to establish a connection.

I get the following entries in firebird.log:

TOMSTONE Wed Nov 30 22:42:42 2005
INET/inet_error: select in packet_receive errno = 10038

TOMSTONE Wed Nov 30 22:42:45 2005
INET/inet_error: select in packet_receive errno = 10038

If I now run \bin\uninstall.bat and install SuperServer via
install_super.bat I can connect with the same connect string using

Any hints are much appreciated.
