FM Pro Unlimited 5 not finding FM server

1 post in this topic

We are migrating our web server from Windows to Linux, and are moving our FMU package to a Windows 2003 machine where the web server will proxy it.

FMU runs fine, as far as operation goes, but when it starts up, it will not find the FM server, even though it is in the same subnet. When I click on "Local hosts" nothing shows up in the list. If I click on the server name (I've added it to the list) it finds it just fine. The 2003 box can do both forward and reverse lookups on the name/ip of the FM server, and can connect to it fine when explicitly given the name, but it will not find it automatically which prevents FMU from starting up at boot.*

Any ideas?

*We have a user set to auto-login, and this user runs FMU as part of their startup.

    • Web Companion, Entry Only Layout and Netscape
      By OSXS
      Hello all:
      Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I haven't found an answer to the problem so far. Here it is:
      I have a db created in FMP 5, and its shared as Entry Only in the Web Companion. In IE 5 and 4 on Mac and Win, the Entry Only layout works. On Netscape (Mac, Win I haven't tried yet) I get a short attempt to build the Entry Only layout, wich terminates prematurely, and then builds a List View layout, which allows full manipulation of the data. This is exactly what I don't want!! I need a 'data drop box' without further access to data for web users. The described problem occurs when connecting to FMPro Unlimited directly, or when connecting via FMWSC on OSXS.
      Any hints would be highly appreciated!
      Cheers, and look out for OSX! It's sleek and fast!

    • CDML use and reference
      By OSXS
      Dear all:
      I would like to use the custom web publishing features of FM Pro Unlimited, using CDML. However, I am unable to find a reference of CDML Tags on the FM site (I always get errors when trying to search the tech info knowledge base). Could anyone refer me to a source?
      Also, does anyone know of a good CDML-tutorial? I don't seem to be able to find anything of that sort as part of the FM Pro Unlimited electronic documentation.
      Any help would be highly appreciated
      Cheers,
      Ron

    • Using built-in access privileges with CDML
      By OSXS
      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
      Cheers,
