Engine12 is actually the post of Firebird 3 that is the implementation of the database server (and understands ODS12).

So it is a required part of Firebird 3.

Hi All,
Is there a reason why the FB 3 server configured as follows would require Engine12 as a provider?
DatabaseAccess  = None
AuthServer  = Srp
AuthClient  = Srp
UserManager  = Srp
Providers  = Remote
WireCrypt  = Enabled
WireCompression = false
ServerMode  = Super
I've noticed the network applications that access the FB3 db failed to connect unless I add the Engine12 to the providers list, would that be because FB3 engine needs Engine12 to access the security DB at the handshake?
The way the network apps try to talk to the FB3 server is via ODBC and the database field is defined as , I also tried with and made no difference, any ide why Engine12 is required?
