Subject Re: Firebird CS on Solaris 10
Author Andrei Babyuk
Thank you for good pointers. This was indeed inetd problem since on
Solaris 10 it does not use inetd.conf anymore. I did not find the
install script you were talking about, but configured inetd manually
(and hopefully correctly) and now can telnet to gds_db and run gsec.
However I still cannot connect to any databases and now do not get any
messages in firebird.log.
#./isql /usr/local/firebird/security.fdb
gives me
Abort - core dumped

Any ideas on how I could further troubleshoot this?

Thank you,
