Subject Dealing with Firewall / connection issues
Author Robert martin

When we try to connect to a FB database using a TIBODatabase (v. 4.8.7)
where a Firewall is blocking connection the component raises an
exception (after a long pause). In Delphi I have trapped the exception
and displayed an appropriated error message. However the error seems to
propagate through my application in that the exception seems to 'break
through' the exception handling and trigger a second exception handler.
I have dealt with this and close my application after this but get
access violations.

I think something in the TIBODatabase component is seriously breaking.
is there anything I can do? I am currently investigating testing for a
firewall before attempting connection as an alternative.
