Subject Can't connect to local Firebird server
Author B?lint Nagy


I have an app that I need to install on a Windows 7 PC with a Firebird server, but (when installed locally) it can’t connect to the Firebird database.

The same app with the same connection string works perfectly from a remote machine, acessing the same FB server.


Fb Server version is WI-V2.0.3.12981 Firebird 2.0

I use Firebird ADO.Net Client v5.12.1.0 For .Net 4.0 (I also tried v5.11).

The error I’m getting is

FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.FbException: SQLDA error

---> FirebirdSql.Data.Common.IscException: SQLDA error

   at FirebirdSql.Data.Client.Managed.Version10.GdsStatement.ParseTruncSqlInfo(Byte[] info, Byte[] items, Descriptor[]& rowDescs)

   at FirebirdSql.Data.Client.Managed.Version10.GdsStatement.ProcessPrepareResponse(GenericResponse response)

   at FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.FbCommand.ExecuteCommand(CommandBehavior behavior, Boolean returnsSet)

   at FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.FbCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior)


Any ideas?
