10093 is a windows socket initialisation error (could not initialize socket).

The two most likely causes are:

1) the client is trying to connect to the database server before the
database server has properly started. It is likely to happen when a client
tries to connect before the server has finished booting up and starting

2) a Firebird client is trying to connect to a Firebird server while
another Firebird server, an InterBase server (or something else that uses
port 3050) is running connections through the same service port. Try to
find out what your customer has installed on the server recently. Like it
or not, there are freebie downloads out there that blindly install
themselves without checking what's already installed.
