Who said anything about reading a file from the server? Chapter 9
talks about using a client side copy of Firebird.conf, which is what
I've been shipping with my client app. I thought by changing the
ports in that client-side copy of Firebird.conf, fbclient.dll would
use those ports, but alas not, IBO continued to use 3050 unless I
tweaked the connection string.
If I decided to use a different RemoteAuxPort, does fbclient.dll
obtain that setting from the server when connecting on the service
port, or does the client need to know beforehand. If so, do I use a
client-side copy of Firebird.conf, or do I have to instruct IBO on the
new RemoteAuxPort number?
I've always thought it possible to use a client-side copy of
Firebird.conf, I just want to get it straight in my head, whether it
has any effect, or it's all done by IBO.
