I installed supercontainer on my Windows server at aws Amazon. I also installed the companion plug-in. It shows up on Filemaker Pro no problem. But it doesn't show on webdirect. Any idea?
Here is my configuration:
- FMS 15, Windows 2016 server.
- SuperContainer 2.94, build 9234.
- I have the companion plugin put inside "..\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins".
- The plug-in I use is "SuperContainer_Companion_Plugin.fmx64".
P.S.: I will send an email to 360works. But just want to post it here so we can all share the solution. Thanks.
FileMaker Pro 15 Launch Center connects to our AWS instance with no problem. But then it reports
No files are currently hosted on AWS instancename.
Well, there ARE files currently hosted. We access them via WebDirect, so they must be hosted.
Moreover, when we launch a local copy of the file, FileMaker offers to open the remote copy with
This file has previously been uploaded to FileMaker Server. Use Hosted Version?
It even displays the proper address for the hosted file.
However Use Hosted Version returns this error:
The file “filename.fmp12“ could not be opened. (Extended privilege disabled)
So, we created a privilege set that extended privileges for fmwebdirect, fmapp and fmxdbc.
On the next launch of Remote Version, we got this:
FileMaker cannot share a file because FileMaker network sharing is turned off.
So, we turned on ODBC sharing, and on the next launch, we got this:
FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer.
I’m going in circles here. Are these errors related? What am I doing wrong?
Sorry for my poor english
I made an application in FM15 that is used on the Web
The application shows some HTML paginated data and then print with the print command of the browser used.
I have no problem with Safari and Chrome, while Firefox will not let me see the contents of the Web Viewer.
In the web viewer content is so:
"Data: text / html,
Firefox in the web viewer frame does not see anything
if I open the source of the frame it makes me see the HTML text content but it does not render HTML
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.
Is there any way to get autofill in the browser to autofill the username and password? I've created a guest landing page for the user to be able to input their login info, but it still doesn't autofill.
It is the number 1 complain of the users of my solution. I really wish that I could solve it.
(Please don't tell me it's a security issue, even both of my BANKS let me save my user id, if i'm so inclined)
