hi.

I am trying to connect to a db from another pc.

| PC1 | <--------------------------> | PC2 |

PC 1 holds the db.

When I run the application (On PC2) using the db on PC1 it gives a firebird error on PC1 that reads,
"Missing Configuration File : c:\program files\firebird\firebird_1_5\aliases.conf"

The application is on PC1 aswell and it works fine there.

Help?

You didn't describe the application, so it is difficult to comment. Generally, good databases will not allow this. You have to have the multiuser version.

Well, are you missing the named file?

Well the thing is, the application is gonna take a image via webcam and add it to the database, but that doesnt matter. the fact is I cant get it connected.
Or obviously it does pick up the database because As soon as I try to connect it gives an error n the opposite pc.

I did check the file and Aliases.conf is presnt on both machines.

I tried to creat a simialar Alias in both Alaises.conf file pointing to the same place but that didnt change anything.
