The Firebird client does not provide access to any database files that
are local to the client. (Except in the special case when using th
embedded server, which it sounds like you are not.)

It sounds like you are confused about what Firebird is and the the
basics about how it works. But it also sounds like you have a working
Firebird server, so now I'm the one confused about your situation. Can
you provide us with more details of exactly what you have running and
more on what does not work?
