If you are using InterBase, you have to buy a client licence from Borland
for each remote client machine. The InterBase that comes with Delphi has a
development licence that allows up to five *local* connections for
development purposes but you can't deploy it.

On the other hand, if you were actually using a Firebird client on the
laptop and a Firebird server on the host, you would never see this message,
since all of that licensing code was stripped out of Firebird. So what
have you done?
