It seems to me it should be possible to access a firebird server from
windows 3.11.

We accessed Interbase with windows 3.11 and the connection for at least
version 2.0, 2.1 and 2.5 of firebird is about the same. If you can find
an old copy of Delphi version 1, 2 or 3 you could write something that
accesses firebird. However, it would be difficult to write something in
much else since the support libraries would not exist for windows 3.11.
Though firebird will not compile on windows 3.11 because of lack of
support libraries.

Of course the question Mark asked is still relevant, why would you want
to access from windows 3.11?

Though I admit after much research I succeeded in getting windows 98 and
older versions of programs running on a relatively new computer. It was
sooooooo fast it was almost beyond belief. However, many web sites
complained about the old browser.
