Cannot connect to remote FB Server

Post by dennisliew » Mon 03 Mar 2014 09:50

I have problem connecting to FB server from a remote PC sitting on different subnet mask. It said "Cannot attach to services manager" everytime I tried to establish connection using TCP/IP mode.

Server IP:

Client IP:

Firewall is off at both side.
Port 3050 is opened.
Anti-virus sofware is off.

Local conncetion to database at server is fine.

If I connect from a client PC which resides on the same network segment, it is working fine. I suspect is has something to do with the packet routing or have I missed anything here?

Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks in advanced.

It seems that the problem is due to the specificity of Firebird, not to Devart dbExpress driver for InterBase & Firebird. Please try to connect to the server using default dbExpress driver for Firebird and inform us about the results.
