Subject Re: [firebird-support] Engine12 mistery
My understanding from reading the documentation is:
Provider = Remote means the client is on the network, excluding
Provider = Loopback means the client is actually on the same OS instance as the FB3 engine, and it is using the to access the database to avoid the "embedded server concept" from answering the request, as it would capture the DB file and will not allow any other clients from remote /network source.
Engine12 = The local server takes control of the database as if it was an embedded server, killing all future chance of accessing the DB from the network, so Engine12 is if I understand correctly the way to talk to the DB engine in "exclusive" mode when you want to perform maintenance or work on the security database.
Is the above wrong?

   Because it is server. The configuration is enough for Firebird client, but server needs
engine to work with databases.
