Yes. Given a TCP connection string, it behaves like any other
fbclient.dll. The embedded behaviour only occurs when it is given a
local path as a connection string.

This is explained in the Embedded Readme file, although I was
initially confused too. In any case, just give it the connection
string localhost:c:\MyDatabase.fdb, check the connection works, then
shutdown your firebird service and try it again.
