I use the Interbase API to access the DB (Interbase 7.1 on linux 7.2):
 dpb = dpb_buffer;
   *dpb++ = isc_dpb_version1;
   *dpb++ = isc_dpb_num_buffers;
   *dpb++ = 1;
   *dpb++ = 90;
   dpb_length = dpb - dpb_buffer;
   strcpy(uname,"SYSDBA");
   strcpy(upass,"masterkey");
   isc_expand_dpb(&dpb, &dpb_length,
      isc_dpb_user_name, uname,
      isc_dpb_password, upass,
   NULL);

   strcpy(empdb,"BillingServer:/tmp/test2.gdb");
   db_len=strlen(empdb);

   if(isc_attach_database(status,db_len,empdb,&db,dpb_length,dpb_buffer))
   {
       ERREXIT(status,1)
   }

I encountered the error is :
'connection rejected.'
Who can help me?

Hi,

I usualy prefer the api - or the gpre pre processor for plain c programms to access interbase / firebird.

Ibpp did not compile on my powerpc with firebird 1.5 - but it might work on intel hardware.

Maby Kylix is an solution for you - but (in my oppinion) it is to buggy to use it.
