I've used the IBBackupService component, it works fine but as you saw,
it executes on the server, due to this the path you give to backup
file is relative to the server side.

To backup into a local directory I've used the gbak.exe directly, like

gbak -b -v -user SYSDBA -password masterkey "databasename" "file.fbk"
to backup

gbak -r -v -user SYSDBA -password masterkey "file.fbk" "databasename"
to restore

You can still use -y option to record the logfile.
