The error-message is:
'Unable to complete network request to host "".
Failed to establish a connection.
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.'
I don't know what driver I use, it probably is standard Delphi driver. I am using Embarcadero® Delphi® XE Version 15.0.3890.34076;
I don't know how to enable 3050 port in Firewall - there are two Firewalls - one on the (Laptop Windows XP Avira firewall), another on (Desktop Windows 7 Comodo firewall)
