I have firebird server running as a service on a central computer that is also a workstation. The database is accessed from the local machine that it is stored on as well as from another workstation. I have noticed that even though I have password access turned on for sharing the application using the database doesn't seem to get held up and never askes for the credentials. Is this normal? I hope it is as it is very convenient in this situation but not what I was expecting.

Firebird is client/server based (either via TCP/IP or Named Pipes). On the server side it will simply be accessing the local file, so the only permissions that apply will be those of the Firebird service.

So to answer your question - yes this is normal.
