Subject accessing firebird on windows from linux
Author robert rottermann
Hi there,

I try to access a firebird db on windows from my ubuntu box.
I have a gui-tool (FlameRobin), from which this works nicely. Therefore
it is not a firewall or access problem.

Now I would like to do it using python and sqlalchemy.
So far I failed..

This is the connection string I use:
engine =

I tried many combinations of the part after the port.

thanks for your hints
