 Description  « Hide
SFID: 1016155#
Submitted By: techmind

CONFIGURATION:
Firebird embedded 1.5.1
Delphi 6 Professional


WHAT IS WRONG:

There is a sentence in README_embedded.txt

<citation>
2.2. Database access

    Client access can be only via the TCP/IP local
loopback
    protocol, i.e. a TCP/IP connection string that includes
    the server name "localhost" or IP address 127.0.0.1;
or
    by using the Named Pipes protocol incorporating the
    Windows server name.
    
    The embedded server does not support the
IPServer "local
    connect" to a database file path without a server
name.
    The client must have exclusive access to the
database file.
</citation>

It is misleading as the only connection that works is the
one with the path ONLY. Every attempt with the server
name inside (even 127.0.0.1 or localhost) leads to
starting a new TCP/IP connection to the port 3050 on
the server (in example localhost). If no standalone
interbase is installed the connection cannot be
established.

When you choose a local connection i.e. in TIBDatabase
embedded server works fine.

You are right, the doc distributed with 1.5.1 package initially
was wrong, exactly as you describe. Download the corrected
file from <a href="http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-
bin/viewcvs.cgi/firebird/firebird2/doc/">the CVS tree</a>.
The corrected version (1.1.2.3) can be found in the
B1_5_Release branch.
