I 'm trying to configure Firebird 4 on slackware64 -current.
Its a bare-metal PC that was upgraded from Slackware64 14.2 to Slackware64 15 (-current)! The upgrade appears to have gone well with just a few old configuration files to address.
I uninstalled Firebird 3.0 and installed the latest Firebird 4 using the install script.
using isql I can connect to the example db using:
Statement failed, SQLSTATE = 08006
Unable to complete network request to host "localhost".
-Failed to establish a connection.
following the troubleshooting guidelines I found that
netstat -nl | grep 3050 returned nothing and
nmap localhost reports that 3050 is not an open port.
I have the gds_db 3050/tcp entry in services and have NOT modified firebird.conf
iptables is installed but no rules are defined. I also check hosts.deny etc. localhost is in hosts.allow.
I'm a bit stuck now and am wondering if I need to add a line to inetd.conf but this is a superserver not classic?
if so, could someone send me the correct entry. what I found on the internet looked stale.
Also firebird.log is empty?
