I just installed FM Pro 11 on two Windows 7 (home edition) machine and I cannot see my main file on the server. I set up the Windows Firewall properly to enable FM Pro 11. Settings are ok with my main file. On the client machine, I can see the server but when I click on it, no name appears on the right-hand window. Do I need to upgrade to Windows Server?

Any tips is welcome

Is Access by FileMaker Network enabled in the privilege set for the user account in the server file?

One thing that tripped me up when moving to Windows 7 from XP was that the default workgroup name had changed. However, I don't think this should cause a problem with seeing FM Server.

Have the same thing... If all network connections are OK, type in the address manually (eg. fmnet:/hostip/databasename.fp7) in the 'Open Remote' window.
Even though not visible, it connects...

Ok I don't want to hijack this thread but I'll attach what I'm getting on Windows 8.

FM11 installs and runs but whenever I try to connect to our server it says "no files"

I know this works on other clients (mac and older windows) but not on Win8.

Firewall is turned off, and if I try a direct path I get a "file not found".

The software found the server on it's own but it won't see the files on the server.

I have a user with a PC that has a dead battery. When the power goes out the time reverts back to ~2004 and Filemaker won't display the available files. Is the computer's time close to being accurate?

Check the domain name. The default has changed in Windows 7.

CalSun,

 

Have you ever resolved the issue below?

For the benefit of other users, I noticed that the file "server.pem" was not installed in the FM11 client program folders. So I copied it from another computer which was able to connect and the server files were visible.

Calsun

Resolved the issue using a small file called server.pem which was not installing on windows 8. simply find it on a windows 7 installation and copy it to the same location on your win 8 machine.

Hope that helps.
