Working with IB_Object 4.3.

I can't seem to get the hang of client connection strings and server

I have installed the Firebird Server on machine B and Firebird Client
on machine A. Machine B has 2 drives, C: and E:.

I am sitting with Delphi on Machine A. I create a database using
TIB_Connection and the connection string "\\DM17\:\sales.gdb" which
will indicate netbui connection.

Works fine. The gdb is created in the root directory on C: in machine
A. However, I don't want to use drive C: on the A machine, I need to
use the E: drive that I formatted with 32k allocation unit space
especially for database purposes.

Connection strings:
"\\DM17\:\sales.gdb" connects to the A machine 0n C:\
"\\DM17\:C:\sales.gdb" doesn't work
"\\DM17\:E:\sales.gdb" doesn't work

And of course, shares doesn't work.

"\\\:\sales.gdb" doesn't work

I am missing something, probably both with server setup and
connection string, and I can't seem to find much of a soluton based
on the manuals.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
