That is not correct. Firebird uses any available port for events, unless the server is configured to use a specific port, via RemoteAuxPort. If events are being used and there are no available ports, there will be an exception.

As for a port conflict, it is more likely that the server's security has port 3051 firewalled. And, yes, it is good advice to use higher port numbers when (re)configuring ports. It reduces the likelihood of clashes with other applications.
