Subject SOLVED! Re: [firebird-support] Cannot Connect to FireBird Database from network workstation
Author Jesse McCarty

Thank you everyone for you assistance, Mark's xinet clue turned out to be what I needed. Xinet is not installed by default on Ubuntu 14.04, so I had to install it and make some configuration changes and reboot the server. After that I have remote connection to the database as needed.

Thank you again everyone!

Is that setting changed in the /etc/firebird/firebird.conf file or a different configuration file? I have not made any changes to the xinetd configuration.

Have you checked that Firebird is listening on the external IP address
of the server ( according to the screenshot)? As far as I
recall the default xinetd config of Firebird Classic on Ubuntu only
listens on (localhost).
