The Database Connection menu (Enterprise Edition only) opens the dialog box which allows you to switch between a local database and a remote database.
Database Connection Dialog
Connect to single user local database file (file path):
Select this option to connect to the local database file. This file is located in the Windows All Users Application Data directory by default.
Connect to multi-user database server (Server name or IP Address):
Select this option to connect to a database on a server. Enter the name of the server or the IP Address that your server administrator has provided. The server must have the Firebird database component installed on it. The connection will use TCP/IP. You cannot connect using a shared folder or UNC path. For more information, see the Database Server Configuration Page
Click the "Test Connection" button to verify that your connection is successful.
Check Firebird Version
Click the "Check Firebird Version" button to determine the version of Firebird database in use.
DB Name (Alias):
Enter the value of the Firebird SYSDBA password. This value will be "masterkey" by default, and it can only be changed on the server by your database administrator. If you receive a message which indicates the Login Name / Password was not recognized, try using the default password "masterkey". If this does not work, contact your database server administrator.
