Subject Server refuses my connection
Author colincoleman2002
we have a sbs2003 server running firebird 1.03.972, and has been
fine till we restarted it over xmas, now when we use IBOdatabase
connection or anything come to that we get connection refused. I am
sure we had this before and just restarted the main server, but we
have done this 7 times now warm and cold boot as well, we have
checked the obvious gds_db setting in the services file and it looks
fine, if I use IBExpert to test the connection either on the server
or any client we get the same error stating:-

Failed to connect to host on port gds_db Error Num 10035.

we are running ISA server ,but we always have been and and it was
all working before, the only help i can see is from Borland that
says it could be the Mcafee Anti virus , and this must be
uninstalled from the server (VERY BAD IDEA I THINK).

So does anyone know how to actually track down this problem and fix
it ?
