This message doesn't matter. It's a Windows schoolmarm message that would
occur on earlier releases at service start because the installed service
entry was missing some kind of optional description field. It got added at
1.5.1 or 1.5.2, so we haven't seen this complaint for a while. :-)

What you need to look at is the firebird.log, which is located in your
Firebird root directory. The server or the Guardian will log any WNET or
INET errors it receives. This will provide some leads as to what might be
occurring on the network, between the server and the offending client, to
cause a timeout.
