Subject Re: [firebird-support] unable to complete network request to host

I think your administrator is making changes to your Win2k8 server firewall.
The reason you cant ping, but the app connects is most likely because ICMP Echo (ping) has been blocked via the firewall.

Ive also had strange issues come up (in the past) when I configure my client app to connect using the servers hostname.
I'd suggest that you do the following (if its possible):
1 - use the servers IP address as opposed to its hostname,
2 - ask your administrator to allow port 3050 (I'm assuming that you are using the default FB ports)

Hi Group,

i have a problem with "unable to complete network request to host ".
I have a database on Win2008 Server with Firebird 2.5.3. on it. Untill recently everything worked fine. Now, My program which should check are there any new web orders randomly work / not work.

Situation is very strange I think we have problems with network, but I dont understand how to resolve it.  For example, At the momment I cant ping server, but the program works fine !!! Sometimes it doesnt work even if I can ping server.

I know this is quite difficult, but if someone can give me some directions where to searh for the sollution.
