IB_SERVER should be replaced with the name of the computer
which is running Interbase server (ibserver.exe).

When you create a new INTRBASE alias, the following default is filled in the SERVER NAME parameter:

IB_SERVER:/PATH/DATABASE.GDB

Suppose your Interbase server computer name is 'ROCKET' and it's local path to the database is C:\Database\employee.gdb, then you have to specify ROCKET:C:\Database\employee.gdb

server := '\\Metis\c:\database\employee.gdb'

yes, it's right. If you have TCP/IP then use

server := 'Metis:c:\database\employee.gdb'

be carefull, path MUST be relative server computer, as you see location of the file sitting on the server.
