  I looked at ISQL's source code and found that such error message is be shown if
isc_version() call returns error. ISQL assume that error means no connection. But
there will be error also if server can't recognize info items passed by isc_version()
into underlying call of isc_database_info(). In Firebird 2.5 isc_version() implementation
passed isc_info_firebird_version tag into isc_database_info(). I'm almost sure you have
run *not Firebird 2.5* server and it have no knowledge about isc_info_firebird_version
and returns error.
Hope it is clear now.

PS usage of isc_info_firebird_version (instead of isc_info_version) was introduced at year 2003,
so, i guess, you have tooo old Firebird running or even Interbase.
