PHP 4.3.1 is running on linux Redhat 6.2 /with many manual updates/ + Apache 2.0.45 and trying to connect to interbase database.
All scripts are working ok from command-line, 
like: "php page.php" while I am getting error like in subject if connection to ibase is being made from script runing via Apache.
Interbase clent and server works OK, 'services' file includes proper line:
gds_db        3050/tcp  

So all is working but not visa Apache!

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Local networking issue, this is not a bug in PHP, but 
improper system configuration.
