thanks for reply, I hopefully solved that right now! (was already
responding that your suggestion doesn't work either...:-)

The problem was that the Protocol property had to be set up
manually, too.

Before, I didn't specify tcp-port in the connection string and the
Protocol property set itself up automatically. Like:
DataBaseName := 'localhost:c:\database.fdb' -> Protocol = cpLocal
DataBaseName := 'someserver:c:\database.fdb' -> Protocol = cpTCP_IP

Currently I'm connecting to 'localhost' explicitly specifying the
port '3050' (coz I don't know how to setup FB to listen on other
port right now...). I hope it will work the same later, locally and
remotely and on different ports too...?! (else I'm back here very
soon :-)
