InterBase supports TCP/IP for all combinations of client and server platforms. Additionally, InterBase supports NetBEUI on Windows server platforms and for all Windows clients, and a local connection mode (involving inter-process communication but no network interface) for Windows clients.

InterBase is designed to allow clients running one operating system to access an InterBase server that is running on a different platform and operating system than the client.

In the following table, Windows non-server platforms are Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows XP Pro (32-bit). Windows servers are Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit).
