Host FMP14 on FMS12?
Please bear with me; I'm a graphic designer learning to develop for my company when I have time. My boss bought me a copy of FMPA14 because I had heard our FMS12 could still host it, but I'm getting an SSL error when I try to connect to the server from FMP14. We have FMS12v04 on an old G5 running OS X Lion and it can't be upgraded any further. I've been researching this a bit and I found links to update FMS12 to v09 (I think?) which I haven't done yet. We all connect to the server with our workstations via LAN. We don't use FMGo or XML or anything like that (at this point). Is there a workaround or an option I can turn off somewhere? I don't want to buy an SSL certificate and I wouldn't know what to do with it if I had one. Thanks!
Not seeing the local host via VPN
I am having a hard time accessing my database via remote open and vpn. Actually I ‘ve never been able to find the computer serving the db at the office (a mini) as a local host. And that despite being inside the vpn and being able to mount server shares and the like. Oh, and I am on a mac.
Anyone have any clue on what could be happening under the hood?
(p.s. this isn't fms 13 specific, I 've had it with 12 server too)
Excel "download" from FM11 Server IWP
Is there any way to create an Excel download for an IWP connected user? I've thought about have a script that creates a flag and have a client on the server that run periodically and looks for the flag and emails the Excel file to the user. The problem is that the file needs to "Replace" the old file and that doesn't seem to function properly. I get an error message.
Hosted database files not available
My FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go cannot find my databases hosted with FileMaker Server. The problem could be very simple, but I am not proficient in servers and have no idea of what could have gone wrong.
I have installed FileMaker Server (FMS) to a server computer that also has FileMaker Pro installed. The database was uploaded with FMS, and the status was shown as Normal, with Pro, XSLT, XML and PHP checked. On the FMS Overview screen, the Database Server was only showing ODBC/JDBC as "off". The FileMaker Pro on the server computer was closed.
On another computer, or on my iPads, they simply could not detect the databases at all. I tried running the FMS Technology Test on these computers but cannot connect to them either.
As a non-specialist in servers I would really appreciate any help and suggestions on how to fix this.
