Put the server name in the Server property, viz. MyServerName.

Put the path (local to the server) in the Path property, viz.

Select cpNetBeui for the protocol you are using here (named pipes) or,
better still, select cpTCP_IP (it's less noisy than named pipes).

And note that the Windows "native" protocol is named pipes, not Windows
file-sharing. If you put a file-share or a mapped drive in the path,
Firebird won't recognise it. Filesharing is not an option. As for the
host name, the Windows TCP/IP service automatically uses the host's netBeui
node name as the TCP/IP hostname.

No need. Without modification, IBO doesn't know it from diddly-squit.
