If possible, upgrade to 3.0.4. I can't identify a ticket that matches
this specific problem, but I know there were several issues in the early
clients with authentication.

Config options prefixed with `#` are comments describing the default. I
assume that value for WireCrypt you show was prefixed with #, otherwise
that is an invalid config value (valid values are one of Enable,
Required, Disabled). Although, IIRC, the WireCrypt setting is ignored
when connecting to Firebird 2.5 or earlier.

Also check if there isn't another firebird.conf.

That is a valid connection string. Why do you suspect that this could be
a problem?
