If I have understood correctly, both Borland and Phoenix have
"licenced" versions of Interbase/Firebird. Presuming that the
licencing is setup the same as in IB5 then it would be simply a matter
of not installing the network access licence.

Of course if you built your own copy of Firebird from the source you
could probably take care of this more directly.

Another way of resolving this is with a product like ZoneAlarm. It
allows you to allow/deny network access to programs on the PC (as well
as providing firewall access from the network itself). An advantage
here would be the ability to "turn on" network access during support
problems and then turn it off again later.
