Subject How to start Firebird server, and how to connect (on Linux)?
Author that.SelectedDude
Hi, I've read the FAQ, the Novice Guide, the article on how to connect
under Linux, I've also Google'd - however, I can't seem to find a
starting point.

This is on Ubuntu Linux. I've installed Firebird Classic Server 1.5.3
from the Ubuntu repositories.

I was using FlameRobin and ibwebadmin to connect. Both return the error

*** IBPP::SQLException ***
Context: Service::Connect
Message: isc_service_attach failed

SQL Message : -902
Unsuccessful execution caused by a system error that precludes
successful execution of subsequent statements

Engine Code : 335544721
Engine Message :
Unable to complete network request to host "localhost".
Failed to establish a connection.
Connection refused

This should mean Firebird Server isn't started.
I've started /usr/lib/firebird2/bin/fb_inet_server though, and the
process shows up in the process list.
There are no other processes which names start with "fb".

Any hints on how to proceed?
