Subject How can I check using C# if firebird is running?
Author clemenslinders

I noticed a few times that that the firebird service may be down. My
application will than ofcourse crash.

Ofcourse using VS 2005 C# I can use a TRY CATCH and if the database
files exists than it remains the obvious that firebird must be down.
But some kind of Firebird check is more elegant and possibly there is
a way to start up the firebird service.

PS I'm using firebird version 2.00

Kind regards,
