Change the port that Interbase listens on
Question: Our firewall does not allow incoming traffic on port 3050 (which is the default port for InterBase). How can I change that?
Answer: You need to edit a text file called 'services'.
1) shut down the interbase server. (In windows: go to the control panel, admin tools, services, and stop the IB Guardian.)
2) locate the 'services' file. (Hint: see box below)
3) locate the following line:
and change it to
gds_db 8000/tcp #we operate on 8000 now
4) restart the InterBase server.
Note about this services file:
The services file is a local source of information regarding each service available through the Internet. Applications may call the getservbyname() routines to access this information.
