Subject Changing TCP/IP port shows no effect
Author stefan.schiele
Hi !

I'm using Firebird 2.1 Superserver on WinXP/Win7 and I'm trying to solve the dual installation problem of Interbase/Firebird.

I changed the firebird.conf file in the following way:
RemoteServiceName = fb_db
RemoteServicePort = 3053

In the windows "services" file I added:
fb_db 3053 #Firebird

For the connection string I used:

Even after system reboot I get a connection error
"Failed to locate host machine. Undefined service 3053/tcp".

netstat -na says that Firebird still uses port 3050.

Any suggestions, how to solve this ?
Thanks in advance,
