I am trying to connect to an Interbase-server on a server through ISQL, but can't get connected.
No problems with IBConsole, but I also want to be able to do things through ISQL.

Situation: ServerName: TestServer, running Windows 2000 Server
               IP: 192.168.xxx.xxx
               Username: MyName
               Password: MyPassword
               InterBase-server is only running on TestServer, not local.
               Database: Filename.gdb, located on Testserver, drive D:\Dirxxx\SubDirxxx

I put in the following commands:
  - isql
  - Connect \\TestServer\D:\Dirxxx\SubDirxxx\FileName.gdb user MyName Password MyPassword;

I get the errors: Statement failed, SQL-code = -902
                        I/O-error for file "D:\Dirxxx etc.
                        Error while trying to open the file
                        The system cannot find the path specified.

I think ISQL doesn't know which protocol to use, or it cannot find my server.
Do I have to specify a protocol to use, or is something else wrong in the commands ?

Found the solution myself.

Solution was:
  - Connect 'TestServer:D:\Dirxxx\SubDirxxx\FileName.gdb' user MyName Password MyPassword;

(watch the single quotes around server- and filename).
