|Subject||Re: [firebird-support] FB on LAN|
I changed the firebird.conf by another one and restarted the server.
Now my string connection 192.168.0.158:C:\DIR1\BASEDIR\MYDATABASE.FDB is working.
I compared both firebird.conf and found two differences:
1) In the line near
# Remove protection against opening databases on NFS mounted volumes on
# Linux/Unix and SMB/CIFS volumes on Windows.
that appears in original
# ***WARNING*** ***WARNING*** ***WARNING*** ***WARNING***
in my firebird.conf the line was brioked, like
# ***WARNING*** ***WARNING**
* ***WARNING*** ***WARNING***
2) There was difference in this line too, but the lines are commented.
#CpuAffinityMask = 1
#CpuAffinityMask = 192
I am sure this could not cause problems, but the item 1 could? I don´t think so.
You told me something about using WNET protocol.
Do you know where could I find information about string connections and protocols?
Thank you for answering.

In your first question your connection string was:
Note the absence of _C:_ This means you are connecting with a relative
path. And the root of this path depends on the configuration (and maybe
on the user running Firebird).

I just realised that you never specified the exact error you received.
Can't you connect to Firebird at all? What error do you get?
In that case it might be that it is 1) configured to use a different
port (setting RemoteServicePort), 2) is blocked by the (Windows)
firewall (make sure there is an exclusion for the process), 3) another
process is running on port 3050, or 4) the firebird process is only
listening on 127.0.0.1 (setting RemoteBindAddress).
