Subject RE: [IBO] IB_Connection Settings for Embedded
Author Jason Wharton
My guess is that you are only allowed to have multiple connections within
the same process. When using Delphi as the IDE and having your running
application in a separate process these two server instances compete.

My suggestion is to develop your application with a standard client/server
setup and then when its time to deploy use the local engine.
