By default, Win 2003 doesn't open any ports in the firewall. Open at least
port 3050 and, if you are using events, open at least one more. You can
open a specific port, e.g. 30050, and configure RemoteAuxPort = 30050 in

you are using IBO 4.2.-something, make sure to configure the server with
OldParameterOrdering = 1.
