What you might have missed:

1. Did you install the passwords (including SYSDBA) with the clause
USING PLUGIN Legacy_UserManager ? If not, your CREATE | ALTER
USER statements install them by default as SRP users and the
legacy logins won't work. You can check by querying SEC$USERS.

2. Did you configure the UserManager parameter? By default it is
Srp. If you want Legacy_Auth to be available, you need to configure it

3. Did you modify the WireCrypt parameter from Required to Enabled
(or Disabled)? You need to do that for legacy clients because only
the Fb3 client knows about wire encryption.

Remember that legacy passwords won't be checked beyond 8 characters.
