You can force windows to reload the host file by doing

nbtstat -R

from the command line. Note the -R must be capitalized.

Subject: [IBO] Connecting a Windows Client To Linux Interbase Server

Hi People,
I developed an application on a stand-alone PC using Dephi 3 and
IBOjects to connect directly to Interbase. I am now porting my
database to Linux with CS Interbase.
I cannot get my Windows Client to connect to the DBMS in Linux. I
read that all I have to do is put an entry in the Windows HOST file
as follows eg.
127.0.01 localhost sugba (private domain),

but it is not working.

I am getting this error: host sugba cannot be found
unknown Win32 error 10061

Thanks for the help it is much appreciated. My application is a
student information system for our school.

IB Objects - direct, complete, custom connectivity to Firebird or InterBase
without the need for BDE, ODBC or any other layer.
