Server name must be as: 'remoteserver', but no ''... In last
clause you may have big delays in connection process and work with
database.. Please check your DNS settings too...

You ONLY need (in TCP/IP protocol) set as:
IB_Database.Database:='remoteserver:C:\Program Files\Borland

And you may turn IB_Database.LoginPrompt property to TRUE for enter UserName
and password... (UserName now are not defined too ;) or set
