Could not get database names for filemaker database server
By Gianluca D'Aquino
I installed today mirror sync as a trial on a filemaker server to give it a try. After Installation and reboot of the server (basically it wasn't responding) I logged in on mirror sync and start creating a new configuration, but It gives me an error when I try to access to the database server.
What am I missing?
Container export to IOS Photo app?
I have developed a solution for IOS devices which also utilizes scripts that facilitate importing of GPS coordinates and especially photos from the device, i.e. iPhone or iPad, within FMGo. Although I have scripted the possibility of emailing images originally captured by the solution outside of the solution, there does not seem to be a possibility for exporting the captured image to the Photos app and thus pushing them to the iCloud. I know one could first capture the image in the Camera app and then import it into a container within the solution, but this distracts from the all-in-one nature of my solution, where quick image capture is paramount. Ideally, the user would use the solution to capture the image and related contextual data, but also elect to save such an image in the Photo app at a later stage to permit sharing it to social media apps, for example.
I'm fairly advanced, having used FM since the Claris days.
PDF on FileMaker Server 14 (Windows) generating security error
I am experiencing a nasty problem with a Filemaker Server 188.8.131.522 on Windows Server 2012R2. PDF s in a container field don't display, but instead either one of two things happen:
1 on FMPA14 running on Terminal Server (Windows), an error displays 'Security settings do not allow downloading this file' (or something similar, the message is in Dutch). the dialog doesn't display a FileMaker icon, only a yellow warning sign (Windows?). The Terminal server has Acrobat Reader DC installed, which can open the PDF locally. Opening the FMP database with the FMPA locally displays the PDF, both stroed 'in file' and as Remote Container.
2 on FMP14 running on a normal Windows workstation, the PDF is opened in Adobe Acrobat in a separate window instead of being displayed in the container field.
We checked ports 80, 443, 16000 and 16001 being blocked on the Firewall (clients and server are within the same LAN). PNG and JPG will display OK, and the PDFs are stored properly, so it seems.
Where is this security error coming from?
Could it be a problem with Windows Server 2012 not allowing Tomcat Server to run? And if so, what can I do to fix this?
