AFAIK, you must have a server name pointing to a network IP address for a
Terminal Services connection. And of course you must supply the SYSDBA
user name and password to get GSEC access.

What have you tried so far?

btw, it's not really quite comparable with the BackupService, since gbak
requires the remote service_mgr to do remote backups, whereas GSEC is
(under the hood of the IBOBackupService component) connecting you as an
ordinary client to security.fdb.
