Learn how to connect to your local InterBase instance from your Delphi or C++ Builder projects easily with the help of FireDAC.
The FireDAC native driver supports Embarcadero InterBase Server, Desktop, Developer, ToGo, and IBLite editions version 6 and later.
To connect to InterBase, most applications require that you specify the DriverID, Protocol, Server, Database, User_Name, Password, and CharacterSet connection definition parameters (see Defining Connection (FireDAC) for details). To use TLS/SSL encryption, pass the key-value pair ssl=true on the value of the Database parameter.
In this short video tutorial, you can quickly see an overview of connecting to local InterBase instances from IBConsole and FireDAC.
