For classic architecture of IB and FB with version <1.5.x IBE use connection
to security database for
obtain users list. For classic FB 1.5.1 and higher - IBE use service API,
what introduced in this version of FB. For super server you can get users
via service API.

Service API work with server (but not with security database) and server
"know", where located his security database.
