Subject: [firebird-support] Problem in connecting to a database

Hi All,

I am new to Firebird. I am not comfortable with character-based clients, and so have downloaded a GUI utility named FlameRobin (

I am trying to connect to the "EMPLOYEE.FDB" database that is shipped with Firebird. However, I am not able to connect to it using FlameRobin and getting an unhandled error message. The screenshot of the error message is available at :

Please let me know the username, password, Charset and role that is required to connect to the database. The Windows version on my computer is XP SP3, the Flamerobin version is, and the Firebird version is 2.1.3.

As additional info, the database is stored locally and I have installed Firebird using the Classic option.
