Password length sent by module is never longer than 8 characters. #79
Recently started using this module for my node project to connect to my firebird 3.0.2 database.
"While connecting - Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to set up a Firebird login."
I had tried logging in with my firebird client with no problem so the passwords were correct.
I started debugging with the sample project (which btw was extremely helpful) and eventually with the help of the online firebird manuals figured out that before version 3 the passwords could only be of length 8. Using the sample project I confirmed this and have now only created users with password length maximum 8.
So the issue is that the module only stores the first 8 characters of the password to send to the server but firebird servers of version 3 expect the whole password.
Hopefully this can help others who encounter the same issue and maybe a solution can be found.
