This sounds like you've chosen Classic Server when installing 1.5.
With Classic/Windows you *must* specify a hostname - even if it's
"only" localhost.

Firebird 1.0 for Windows is Superserver-only. Please install 1.5 again
and choose Superserver. Then you should be able to connect with just a
path. If you prefer Classic, you'll have to live with providing the
hostname every time (at least on Win).
