|Subject||Problems with connecting to Firebird 2.5.5 over TCP/IP on Linux (Ubuntu).|
could you be so kind and help me to diagnose problem with connecting to Firebird on Ubuntu? I do not have experience with linux (haven't touched it for years). Today I've installed Ubuntu on VM and installed Firebird classic using instructions from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Firebird2.5
Unfortunately, I am getting such error: Statement failed, SQLSTATE = 08006 Unable to complete network request to host "localhost". This error shows when I issue this command:
$ isql-fb SQL> connect "localhost:/var/lib/firebird/2.5/data/employee.fdb " user 'SYSDBA' password 'masterkey';
However, when I issue the comand without "localhost:", such us:
$ isql-fb SQL> connect "/var/lib/firebird/2.5/data/employee.fdb " user 'SYSDBA' password 'masterkey';
I can connect to Firebird, so that means that something is wrong with my TCP/IP? How can I correct this?
Could someone help me?
Thank you for your time.
