Connecting to Firebird DB located on smb share
« on: October 30, 2014, 10:35:40 am »
I am developing a program on Windows 7. So far I had a temporary .fdb file located in a folder. Until now, it was:

Hostname:"localhost"
DatabaseName:"C:\path\to\database.fdb"

I need to connect to the one located in a folder on the SMB share. The server is a Linux server. I tried many things, without success.

Edit: I always get "No such file or directory" or "Failed to establish a connection"

Don't do that, you will corrupt database file.
Firebird don't allow network share connection to db files.
You can force use of network share with firebird.conf file (read documentation) but:
Don't do that, you will corrupt database file.

This is firebird support question, ask on firebird forum

Orvel,
Why not to install firebird server in Linux? They work nice together.

Somewhere I read that it does not matter how you connect and that it's even better to it this way.

Edit: I think it was on their forums.
