Firebird Database connectivity with ASP

I have a Firebird Application. I am trying to create a web interface to the Database. I am using the IBPhoenix ODBC Drivers on a Windows 2000 Server.

I have written other web applications using MS SQL Server with no problems but at the moment I cannot get the Database to even connect.
Here is my Connection Script

Set RecordSet1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
connect = "data source=wsiyard;user id=SYSDBA;password=masterkey;dbase=c:\warehouse\warehouse.gdb"
query = "select * from export_checkin"
adOpenKeyset = 1

      recordset1.Open query, connect, adOpenKeyset <---- Error Occurs here.
I get an error. "unavailable database"
I have confirmed all the settings in the ODBC Configuration are Correct. The Database does exist. It just will not Connect.

Please any ideas, comments and solutions would be much appreciated.

Have you tried to connect to the database through the ODBC Manager in Windows? This would probably be the best place to start so you could see if you can connect at all. From there, you could use that information to build a connection string that should work in ASP.

In the ODBC Manager I can actually see all my Tables, Views and Stored procedures.
Using Dreamweavers Recordset Wizard also sees the Tables and creates the Queries.
When I try and execute the page I get the error. This is why I'm so confused as to why it doesn't work.

Hmmm... Do you have permissions set so that IUSR_<machine> can access the database on your web server?

I tried giving the IUSR Administrator rights and that still didn't work.
