Why don't you read the release notes and/or the Quick Start Guide? Your
problem is almost certainly that you are trying to make a local (IPServer)
connection, which Classic does not support.

If you want to connect to Classic using a local client, use the localhost
(TCP local loopback) server in your path, e.g.

localhost:c:\program files\firebird\firebird_1_5\examples\employee.fdb

No. You just need to read the documentation.
