I'm trying to change firebird (2.5.1) default port from 3050 to 3051 on OpenSuse 11.4

So I installed firebird ( and in /opt/firebird/firebird.conf I uncommented and changed RemoteServicePort to 3051, reboot the server but the service is still running on 3050.

Do I forgot something?

You can edit /etc/services end set

gds_db          3051/tcp                        # InterBase server
gds_db          3051/udp

Thanks - that was it :-) The service register in /scripts/ so it can be edited before install. – JustMe Mar 8 '12 at 13:56
