What if you do not ommit servername on server side? Is this working? If not then service is not running or fbconfig have only local connections plugin set (if it is Firebird 3)

Temat: [firebird-support] Can't connect to Linux FB 2.5 remotely


We have set up a FB 2.5 on a Linux server. We can access it locally from the server, but when we try to access it from any other computer on our local network (from which we can successfully ping the server), we get:

Statement failed, SQLSTATE = 08006
Unable to complete network request to host "servername".

The command we are using to try to access it is like:

isql -u username -p password servername:aliasname

The exact same command works on the server itself, omitting the server name of course.

We are quite sure that there is no active firewall stopping the connections.

Any bright ideas? Thanks.
