I can:

gstat -i "localhost:c:\program
files\firebird\firebird_1_5\examples\employee.fdb" -user sysdba -password

I believe the reason that gstat -h works without the remote path is that
it's doing only a file read for the header stuff.

For the index stuff, it has to connect to the database and, of course, you
can't use an IPC connect on Classic. You'll always need to supply username
and password when connecting remotely.

Note the double quotes around the path - I get a "Windows NT error 3" if I
don't use them on paths containing blanks.
