Subject RE: [IBO] Connecting problems on Linux

From the workstation where you're having the problem, what happens if
you "ping dbserver"? Then try "ping w.x.y.z", where w.x.y.z is
dbserver's IP address. If the first one doesn't work, but the second
does, you've got a name resolution problem. If you can't resolve the
name properly, you're gonna have problems with Interbase. If all else
fails you can put an entry in your HOSTS file on the client workstation:

w.x.y.z dbserver

Where w.x.y.z is the IP address of your Linux box.

Also be sure that, from the Linux box that you're having problems with,
you can "ping clientname" and "ping a.b.c.d" where a.b.c.d is the
address of the client computer. Same holds true here as above.

A better solution is a properly configured local DNS server, with
forwarders set up to your ISP's DNS and zone transfers disabled if your
network is connected to the internet. Be sure to use a TLD (top-level
domain) that is invalid on the 'net for your internal machines, unless
they REALLY have real DNS names and official IP addresses. I tend to
use the MS Win2K default of .local (as in, dbserver.mydomain.local), but
whatever works for you.

DHCP is a good idea, too.

Good network infrastructure solves a multitude of problems.

Hope this helps.

I've installed Firebird Superserver on 2 machines with Suse
7.3 kernel 2.4.16.

All my client apps connect OK on the 1st machine. But on the other
one all apps with IBO DML caching cannot connect.
The error message is:

ISC errorno: 335544721
ISC errormessage:
Unable to complete network request to host "dbserver".
Failed to establish a secondary connection for event processing. Unknown
Win32 error 10061

After this error occurs, Firebird shutdown on the server takes several

WISQL, IBExpert and apps without IBO DML caching connect and run OK.

gds32.dll Vers. WI-V1.0.0.794
connection using TCP/IP "dbserver:/db/dbfile.gdb"

Any ideas?



IB Objects - direct, complete, custom connectivity to Firebird or
without the need for BDE, ODBC or any other layer.
