Would it bother you to share some more informations with us?
Such as how your connection strings are lookinkg like?

A marginal note by the way: you are shurely aware of the fact that
Firebird versions up to Version 2.1 are not maintained any more.
See for more information.

A first guess for your problem: Windows Firewall.
