Subject Firebird TCP/IP connection string error SQLCODE = -902
Author gio_online

I installed FirebirdCS- in Ubuntu 6.06.
I opened a root shell and followed the instructions from the
installation notes.

I got an error when I excute the following command as indicated in
the installation notes.

connect localhost:employee.fdb;
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902
Unable to complete network request to host "localhost".
- Failed to establish a connection.
- Connection refused

I tried using:
connect localhost:/opt/firebird/examples/empbuild/employee.fdb;

and these still didn't work.

I tried the following commands and it worked:

connect employee.fdb;
-- or --
connect employee;

But I want to connect thru TCP/IP connection string.
Any idea on what I have missed?
I wanted to use TCP/IP connection string because later on I want to
connect from a Windows remote client to Firebird database in Ubuntu
using ODBC.

Thank you very much for your time.
