Good to know about the xnet: preface. I somehow missed that in the release
notes. I suppose is all that has to happen is people need to plug in xnet as
the server and it will pass that on to the client and it will know what to
do with it from there.

But, yes, there is definitely a problem when using the embedded server at
design time because it would put locks on the database file and then when
you go to run your app it would attempt yet another lock on the local files
and fail.

You've very likely on the right track regarding the reason for the
"connection rejected" message. However, don't overlook the effects of
the new architecture. The "windows local" style of connection,
a.k.a., "serverless", now requires the prefix "xnet:\" before the path.
If you stick with just the path, or your connection object is
configured "cpLocal" what you now get is the embedded engine. A live
connection that used a serverless path string will block any other

I haven't (so far) done any rigorous testing with IBO over Fb 3 and
not at all in the IDE. However, I certainly bumped into this problem
when I first tried to use IB_SQL with Fb 3 and the old-style
connection string while simultaneously connected with isql.

Also, I have neither a recent Delphi nor a recent IBO, so I can't test
how Jason is handling the revised protocols.
