Delphi 32 -> Interbase 4.0/Novell

Hi!
I'm trying to connect to an Interbase 4.0 NLM running on
Novell 3.12 using Delphi 32.  Having no luck using
SPX, NETBEU or TCP/IP.  Has anyone accomplished this?
Under SPX, keep getting Cannot find SKYNET@QUERY_SERVER.
Any ides?  (SKYNET is my network)

Nick:

Your choices are TCP/ip or TCP/ip. IPX/SPX is not supported by Delphi 2.0  at this point in time.

To get TCP/IP to work you must put the ip address of both the workstation and the server in the host file of the server and
the workstation. You must also put gsd_db   3050/tcp in the services file of the server and the workstation.

hope this helps
