Yes, port 3050 is correctly open and listening on all local interfaces.
I have tried changing the port to 30500 but I'm still getting the same

I believe the error message is returned by the firebird server itself,
meaning the connection was established successfully but something else is

I'm not sure exactly what though: authentication process, fdb file or other?

I have tried deleting the DLLs from System32 and SysWOW64 to avoid PATH
