Unless your servers name is really localhost, this cannot work.
Use the settings as before but Server Name should be the name of the computer on which Firebird is
running. If you are unsure what the name of that computer is, run this line from the console:
ipconfig /all
The first line(hostname on my german Windows) tells you the name of the computer.

Try that and come back if you still have problems.
