both forums must be on the same server for a conversion (SMF needs read access to the IPB database)..

you must import your database and at leat emulate the conf_global.php from your old IPB. copy this file from your old webserver and put it in the SMF directory.
change this to your new values:
$INFO[sql_database]
$INFO[sql_tbl_prefix]
