Can the Firebird database engine run on the same server where Unidata engine is running?  We have a very small program for Attendance that needs to be installed and I do not want to have to have a separate server set up just for the Firebird Attendance software.  Radiance use to be Optima Attendance.

I've had Oracle Express, SQL Server Express, PostgreSQL and MySQL all running on my laptop at the same time... they all worked (though Oracle was too complicated for me to work out how to log into ;)  )

Good luck finding someone who has had experience running those two particular db's on the same server!


There's really only three ways I can think of that they could clash:

-DLL hell: Probably not an issue as neither product comes from the 'windows stable'.
-Port conflict: If both these platforms use TCP/IP ports and they both use the same port, I'm sure its easy to reconfigure one of them.
-Resources: Your server might just get too busy with both these things running.
