Question about connection to database using jaybird and flamerobin

These might be 2 similar answers so i am going to ask both here.

1.
If i want to connect to a remote database on a windows machine how would i put the connection string for jaybird
jdbc:firebirdsql:native://host[:port]/path/to/db.fdb

However i can't seem to make a connection with this setup
I have a computers say it's called inventory
The database file is c:\Database\db.fdb

jdbc:firebirdsql:native://inventory:3050c:\Database\db.fdb

this does not seem to work

2.
I have a similar problem with flamerobin
I click on server on the menu bar and i register server
entering as the hostname -- \\inventory
enter the port as -- 3050

Then i click on that server and click register database
I put as the database path -- c:\Database\db.fdb
Then i enter the password and user and nothing i get a 334455375

ok i figured out the flamerobin problem

Server settings
   Host -- inventory
      not \\inventory
   port 3050

database Settings
   path -- c:\Database\db.fdb
   pass -- password
   user -- username

now i am just having problems with the jdbc jaybird driver

And now i figured out the jdbc problem

the correct format that worked for me was
jdbc:firebirdsql://inventory:3050/c:/Database/db.fdb
