Thanks Dmitry.

We’ll try to disable IPV6.

I’ll let know if it works.

Interesting. One possible explanation can be found here:

Firebird 2.x does not support IPv6 and always listens on a AF_INET (i.e.
v4) socket, but maybe it could be related somehow. Have you tried to
disable IPv6 on the new server box?
