I installed firebird server on my Ubuntu 12.10 and it is working perfectly when accessing locally
/usr/lib/firebird/2.1# isql-fb -user sysdba -password masterkey Use CONNECT or CREATE DATABASE to specify a database SQL> CONNECT '/var/lib/firebird/2.1/system/help.fdb'; Database: '/var/lib/firebird/2.1/system/help.fdb', User: sysdba SQL> Show tables; TOPICS
My firewall is properly configured
# ufw status Status: active To Action From -- ------ ---- 3050 ALLOW Anywhere 3050 ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
But when I try to connect tge same database remotely it raises: "Connection rejected by remote interface"
Looking at firebird's log it is clear that my fb server is actively denying remote access:
root@ricardo-pc:/usr/lib/firebird/2.1# tail -f firebird.log SERVER/process_packet: connection rejected for ACRAS.4294967295.4294967295 ricardo-pc (Server) Mon Apr 15 09:06:24 2013 SERVER/process_packet: connection rejected for ACRAS.4294967295.4294967295 ricardo-pc (Server) Mon Apr 15 09:19:10 2013 SERVER/process_packet: connection rejected for ACRAS.4294967295.4294967295
I had a deep look at firebird.conf and didn't see any obvious configuration to allow remote access.
How can I do that?
