No, I mean connecting to Interbase server without
knowing the server computer name and the database path.

For example, Sybase Adaptive Server only need you to specify
a server name (not server computer name) and any database
name when you start the database server. So the clients
don't have to worry about the server name and the location of
the database file.

In Interbase case, I guess all clients will have to change
connection parameters when the database file is moved to
another folder in the server. I don't know if this is true
or I just don't know the way.
