I get the following error when trying to start ibserver with the command:

ibmgr -start


SERVER/process_packet: connection rejected for root

Superserver for Unix platforms does not have a true local access method. 
Instead it uses localhost to simulate "local" connections.

Thus, This error occurs because the server tries to initiate a local 
connection via localhost and isn't a trusted host.

To remedy this you just need to make sure localhost is a trusted host. One way 
you can do this is by adding localhost to the /etc/hosts.equiv file. For 
additional information on the hosts.equiv file see man page for it on your 
computer. An example of this man page can be found at

Note: The ib server is actually started despite the error message. You can 
verify that with ps grep for 'ibserver' & 'ibguard'. If this is the case, 
shut down the server and restart it again with the hosts.equiv file in place.

To shut down the server, do:

/usr/interbase/bin/ibmgr -shut -password masterkey

Buon lavoro,
