Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird 1.5 disconnect
Author Robert martin

I have further information

The initial error message is

isc 335544726
Error reading data from connection.

Followed by

isc 335544721
Unable to complete request to host "Counter Main"
Error writing data to the connection.
An established connection was aborted by the software on your host system.

On the system reporting the error the Firebird.log file shows

INET/inet_error: send errno = 10053

This is happening at a number of sites (one client). We are pretty sure
it is some sort of network error. However we can't blame cabling,
network cards or computers as it is at multiple sites that all
previously worked fine.

The key here is the installation of a WAN via VPN and a new router (at
each branch). What should we tell the hardware people?
