I have the Firebird service running on my ubuntu server and it is working fine inside the server. But when I try to use from another machine it does not work. Like a firewall issue. I did make some tests to check out the ubuntu environment:
root@ubuntuserver:~# ps -ef | grep fbserver firebird 1170 1 0 12:28 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/fbguard -daemon -forever -pidfile /var/run/firebird/2.5/fbserver.pid root 3251 3201 0 13:30 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto fbserver root@ubuntuserver:~# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:gds-db ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:3051 Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination root@ubuntuserver:~# nmap -p 3050 localhost Starting Nmap 6.40 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-12-19 13:34 UTC Nmap scan report for localhost (127.0.0.1) Host is up (0.00010s latency).

I think there is something more blocking the access on it. I was able to ping this from other machines on my network.
Please, help me on it.
