Subject RE: [firebird-support] Accessing firebird database on LAN
Author Tariq Mujber

The software which I am installing is called miHotel Manager. When I am
installing the software, it asks me if I want to install it as a server or a
client. So, I did install the software on a computer as a server and on
another computer as client. The software installs a copy of the firebird
server automatically on the server computer. One the client computer, two
files are installed on c:\windows\system32, which are fbclient.dll, and/or

The windows task manager shows that the fbserver.exe and fbguard.exe files
are working.

The software on the server computer works fine but when I am trying to
access it on the client computer, it gives a message that can not access the
database. Here is the access command which I did use:\Program Files\SoftMI\miHotel\DB\

This command works fine on the server but it gives an error on the client to
access the database.

I hope this explains my problem.

Thanks for the help.
