Subject Connection to a remote db
Author Dan Statham
Good Morning!

I have FB 2 SS on my XP development box and another on my Windows
2000 Server.

I also have FB 2 client dlls on another XP machine.

I have tried various methods of connecting to the Employee db on
one machine from another machine.

I have tried with Firebird ODBC and SQL Manager 2005.

With ODBC on both machines, I have tried
These errored with:
Open database 'Server:d:\Program
Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\examples\empbuild\EMPLOYEE.FDB' failed

With SQL Man (dev box to server):
Files\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\examples\empbuild\EMPLOYEE.FDB. This one
errors out with: Connection failed. Server is stopped or unproper
client library is used to establish connection to the server. SQL
Code: -905.
IB Error Number 335544375
(I have confirmed the connection to localhost works.)

I have a peer-to-peer network. I am using Windows f/w on the 2 XP
boxes and ZA on the Win 2k server.

From everything I have found, this method should be working.

What else can I try? or check?
