My father in law has a software program that he manages (and customers access) via remote desktop.  The cutomer information is stored in a Firebird database.  

Last night, he reset the SYSDBA password in firebird.  It kicked all of his customers off the system, and they received the error message referenced.

I am not a tech person, but I am trying my best to help him as he is older and struggles now with managing the software.

It is my understanding that the customers actually have no direct access to Firebird - he has it connected to his software to store all of their data.  Each customer has their own database.  However, somehow the software is linked to it.

How do I reconnect the two?  Where do we update the password?  

When I log in as administrator via remote desktop, I can access their individual databases with the new updated info - but we must not be doing something correctly since they receive the error message.

(Sorry for long message - trying to provide as much detail as possible)

Creating a business with programmers who are "independent contractors" (not employees, per the IRS).

My task or inquiry is to find a way to have my little programming business and to see if it is legally possible to have programmers who are independent contractors, (not employees),
who perform their labor on my computer system that would be a VPS on the internet that is paid for by my company.

The reason that I am asking this question is because the laws say that a company that provides the capital resources of a project is by definition hiring employees not independent contractors, but then the use of an internet VPS raises the question if such an arrangement is legally correct to label the employees as "independent contractors" since it is in a "grey" area of the law that pertains to the software business.

Somebody please explain to me what my best plan of action with regards to this is. I am trying to produce the software at an economical price without short changing any substantial requirement of the law.
