Can you connect using an admin tool (ib expert, ibo console, etc.)?

What's the connect string you are using?

Subject: [IBO] unable to connect to remote DB

I am having a problem with what should be a very simple issue: trying
to connect to a remote FB database. What I can do:

1) On the server, I can connect to a database via TCP/IP just fine.
2) On the client, ping the server by name & IP.
3) On the client, connect to a local FB server via TCP/IP.

But I cannot connect to the server in #1 from the client: I get an
unknown Win32 10060 error.

I have shut down the personal firewalls on each machine (ZA on the
client and Norton on the server) which doesn't make a difference.

This should be very simple--but what should I be looking at?
