That message means that either the Firebird server isn't installed on the
host, or the client is trying to make a local connection to a server that
isn't there. What are the Server and Path properties set to in your

Services manager is a network facility. If you want to use it locally,
you'll need to connect using the local loopback server (localhost) and a
valid tcp/ip connections string.

Quite a few possibilities here. I'm curious what this means:

" On the server and client my GDS32.DLL is v and my fbclient.dll
is v"

They are the same library. You wouldn't be using both of them. If you
didn't do any modifications to IBO, you'll be using the gds32.dll version,
as long as it's in either the exe's path or in system32.
