Hi Helen

I'm confused, I have checked my test networks services file and it
doesn't contain an entry for 3050, neither does the machine having
problems, but the software runs fine on the test network.

Am I correct in understanding of what you have said: that as it
fbserver uses port 3050 by default, that the entry in the services
file is unnecessary? This would certainly support the observations
above regarding the lack of an entry on my test network.

The machine with the problems has had a install of firebird with
Parameters: /silent /NOGDS32.

Is it fair to assume that the /NOGDS32 parameter means that the
services entry is not made?

Unfortunately that still leaves me wondering where the problems are……
