Hi Paul,

Actually it's still a problem of firebird.conf. When you try to
connect locally to a database, everything works fine. But when you try
to connect to a database using network layers, the SQL client seems to
lost the FIREBIRD environnement variable and cannot find the
firebird.conf file in which the RootDirectory property is defined.
I try this with isql, Firebird installed in /soft/fbd152 and the
environnement variable FIREBIRD set to /soft/fbd152 :
"SQL> CONNECT '/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB' user
'SYSDBA' password 'ced';
Database: '/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB', User: SYSDBA"
Everything is OK.
'localhost/3051:/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB' user
'SYSDBA' password 'ced';
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902

Unable to complete network request to host "localhost".
-Failed to establish a connection."
I create the /usr/local/firebird directory and copy the file
firebird.conf (with RootDirectory=/soft/fbd152) into it.
'localhost/3051:/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB' user
'SYSDBA' password 'ced';
'localhost/3051:/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB', User:
Everything OK.
I change the RootDirectory property of
/usr/local/firebird/firebird.conf to a dumb value.
'localhost/3051:/users2/docbackup/lsp00/envoi/master/AFDZ.FDB' user
'SYSDBA' password 'ced';
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902
