Subject ODBC connection
Author Woody
I've never connected to FB using ODBC so I downloaded the driver from the site and installed it in an XP virtual machine. My main
machine is running FB SS 1.5 and using normal client connections
(fbclient.dll) everything works fine.

When trying to configure an ODBC connection through the Windows control
panel, I can connect to the local (in the VM) FB server but it won't connect
to my main computer FB server.

I'm using the IP connection string format:


Windows firewall is turned off in the virtual machine. IBOConsole connects
fine using normal client so I know everything is working normally. I just
can't get the ODBC driver to connect.

Any suggestions on what else I can try or whether I need to supply more
