Helen and Claudio,

Thanks for your patience.

I did find the problem and it wasn't obvious. It was a few files in the
Firebird directory that was causing the problem. The files were composed
of the computer name and the extensions .evn and .lck. As soon as I
deleted these files everything was working fine. I looked on my client
system which had FB 0.9.4 installed and had similar files. I have no
viruses on my systems, they were checked yesterday and came clean. Like I
said the problems started immediately after installing FB 1.0 and the only
applications that weren't able to make a TCP/IP connection were related to
IB/FB, all other TCP/IP connections were working fine and with the same
server I was trying to connect to.

If those .evn and .lck files are created by Firebird, given a certain
circumstance, then I think it would be wise to add this to a FAQ(or other
documentation) for future reference.

Thanks again for your patience and excellent work with Firebird.
