InterBase needs the physical path on the server, not the web root.

So, if it is on drive d in the path \myweb\root\database you need to connect to it with Servername:d:\myweb\root\database\MyDB.gdb. Nothing else will do. No mapped drives, no relative paths.

Make sure the client machines know about the server in its HOSTS file, too, unless you have DNS operating.
