Using GBAK. I don't know if this has changed with Firebird 2, but when
I use 1.5 gbak without -se switch it backs up on the local (client)
filesystem. I just tried it:

milanb@milanws:~$ ls -l test.gbk
/usr/bin/ls: test.gbk: No such file or directory
milanb@milanws:~$ gbak -b srv:db01 test.gbk -user sysdba -pass 123
milanb@milanws:~$ ls -l test.gbk
-rw-r--r-- 1 milanb users 1887232 2007-07-06 15:29 test.gbk
