greetings all! A question for the network security gurus: I have Supercontainer running in standalone mode. My router has port forwarding to the machine (Mac-mini). My credit card vendor requires security IP address scans and I am failing due to the port forwarding on the router. what is best practice? I am using a router flashed with Tomato Shibby.

I'm trying to understand how this works in my environment. We have Filemaker 13 Server, with FM Pro and FM Pro Adv clients. We are in a Windows Server 2012 Domain.
So if I get an Ipad and connect it to the network, then download and install FM go, how does it connect to the FM server? will there be a problem with the Domain? The Ipad doesn't join the domain. Since it isn't joined, it also wouldn't be able to access the fileserver to view PDFs on the fileserver. is this correct?
Extra question non-FM. What concern do you have with the Ipad being hacked? The Ipad would be on the network (even if it didn't get fileserver access). It could cause a security issue.
thanks, not sure if I'm correct on these things. so let me know if I'm wrong.
I currently have a Filemaker 15 solution running on Filemaker Server 15 Advanced. We are currently accessing the solution on Webdirect via VPN connection. I would like to open ports 80/443 so that users could access the solution without connecting to VPN. However, my IT department has flagged security concerns. My question is how real the security concerns are. I know that Filemaker Server 15 Advanced should be encrypting the data. Would that make a non-VPN connection secure? Thanks for any advice.
I am sure this is one of those simple ones… that has me bamboozled for nearly 2 days now.
I need to limit access of my users viewing only a limited set of "Company" records after they log in. The companies that they are allowed to see are listed in each respective user's profile.
My opening script goes to the user's profile and creates a global variable for each company that they are allowed to view.
When I go to the "Manage Security > Edit Privilege Sets > Records > Custom Privileges > Limited > Script", and use any of those variables (e.g. $$Company01"), the records table returns no records at all (i.e. as if there were no matches). When I test the script and use text for any one (or several) of those companies by name (e.g. "ACME PTY LTD"), the access rules work perfectly.
To be clear: The global variables themselves are correct. I know this this because they work in other scripts absolutely perfectly, so the variables DO match the names in the field.
The script looks like this:
$$Company = Table Manufacturer or
$$Company01 = Table Manufacturer or
$$Company02 = Table Manufacturer or
$$Company03 = Table Manufacturer or
$$Company04 = Table Manufacturer or
$$Company05 = Table Manufacturer
In every respect, the variable matches the actual text, but I can only imaging that there is a problem with my syntax?

I must be doing something wrong here - I can't get record access privileges working right.
I am trying to limit viewing of the Teachers table to the currently logged in teacher.
I have a Teacher Privilege Set and all teachers are assigned this set. I have Custom Privileges set for Records. On the Teachers table I have Limited set on the View privilege. My calculation is 'Login = Get(AccountName)' where Login in a field that holds the login name. No records are accessible, all fields just say <No Access>. Using Data Viewer I have double checked to make sure that the Get(AccountName) value is the same as the value in the Login field.
I have even done this calculation: Login = "Brad Mathews" which I KNOW is a valid field value. Still nothing but <No Access>.
I have attached a screenshot showing all of my settings.
