Subject Classic 1.5.2 On Mandriva Linux
Author Ian A. Newby
Hi Folks,
I've just installed the firebird 1.5.2 classic rpm on Mandriva linux
and I cannot connect via tcp using isql.

My command line is /opt/firebird/bin/isql localhost:/data/db/test.fdb
-user <username> -password <password>

In the firebird log file I get
INET/inet_error: connect errno = 111

repeated twice.

If I connect without the localhost, ie

/opt/firebird/bin/isql /data/db/test.fdb -user <username> -password

it all works. I've checked the services and host file, and they seem ok.

Any ideas?
