Subject Quick Interbase Database Check
Author Jerry Sands
How can I quickly determine if a database is available without trying to
connect to it and have a long delay before finding out it is not available.
I have many databases I connect to over the Internet that may or may not be
available at any given time and I would like to verify that I can connect
and thus avoid the timeout delay. Many of the Interbase utility programs
have a quick check button when you set up a connection so there must be an
easy way.
