I found that I did have the xinetd.d directory structure with out the
xinetd package installed on my core 5 server. Since installing the missing
package and reinstall FBCS1.5 the database will now respond to
'localhost:/opt/firebird/examples/employee.fdb'; and any netstat -an |grep

Many thanks Michael / Nige for your input and help

TBH this pretty much sounds like you didn't configure xinetd correctly
to acccept connections for firebird. Especially watch for the
disabled=yes directive that is set by default. Also make sure that
xinetd is installed and started on your system.
here is my xinetd.conf entry:
--- snip ---
service gds_db
disabled = no
#bind =
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = firebird
log_on_success += USERID
log_on_failure += USERID
log_type = FILE /var/log/xinetd.firebird.log
server = /opt/firebird/bin/fb_inet_server
--- snip ---
The bind directive can be used to bind firebird to a specific interface.
If you want to bind it for example on eth0 and lo you will have to
repeat this two times, one time with the ip address of eth0 and one time
with That's why I commented it out here. The server path
would probably need altering too.
Also look here:

> I think i'll take a look at FreeBSD for the FBCS1.5 installation.
My guess would be that this won't solve your problem.

I use it on gentoo, on debian and on ubuntu. No problems with any of
them. I can't tell you about Fedora though, but it shouldn't be a
problem either.
