How do I connect from Linux to a Windows server

Entering the correct path to a database on a Windows server from a Linux client is not very clear. Say you have installed firebird in F:\Program Files\firebird\. The employee.fdb example database will then be installed in the directory F:\Program Files\firebird\examples\ . The IP-adress of your computer is 192.168.2.100. Then entering the following databasename

192.168.2.100:F:\Program Files\firebird\examples\employee.fdb

in your IBConnection will connect to the required database. Note that you don't have to enter a value for the hostname property!

MySQL

MS SQL
