Subject Re: [firebird-support] Embedded Database from server share.
Author S C
The reason I am using firebird embedded is to replace using access dBs. I
do not want to install a server. In my company mapped drives are used for
all my data storage. FireBrid will only work for my purposes from a mapped
drive embedded. Is there any work around for accessing a FireBird dB on a
shared drive.

Don't try to access databases via shares.

The embedded model is specifically for "stand-alone" use, with the client
and the embedded server sharing the same IPC space, which is memory that is
managed by the local machine. If you want to access a networked database,
you have to use a server model that uses a network transport - meaning a
full Classic or Superserver server running on the server and the client
accessing the server via a network protocol.
