I'm successfully conecting from my Windows boxes, I managed quite complicated stuff in a database, but I cannot find the *.fdb file on my CentOS filesystem. There is no "mydb.fdb" file (assuming my database is named mydb, which I use in my connection strings) on the CentOS filesystem. Did an "updatedb" under root, then "locate *.fdb", "locate mydb", locate "mydb.fdb", etc, but no results (besides the examples.fdb and help.fdb files).

What connection string do you use to connect from your Windows boxes?
