In order to register an Firebird server, you need to fill out the dialog below, reached via the Enterprise Manager and the Register Server button.
Register an Firebird Server
Database Workbench needs the following information:
If you click OK, Database Workbench will test the connection - if this succeeds, the server will be registered and added to the Servers node in the Enterprise Manager.
To list databases on an Firebird server, you need to Register them. When you register a new server, Database Workbench will ask you if you want to register a database immediately - if you answer Yes, you will be shown the Register Database Wizard.
Firebird 2.1 and up optionally supports "Windows Authentication", it can accept connections based on your Windows username and password. If you select this authentication method, all username and password information in this dialog will be ignored.
When registering a "Firebird Embedded" server, Database Workbench will respond with an error saying it cannot connect to the server, asking you to "Register Anyway?" - select "Yes". Next, register databases as you would normally do. It is recommended to develop with a full server and deploy with "Firebird Embedded".
