FM Client does not see file on FileMaker Cloud

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

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?

      I am working already a few months on my file "DTW-new.fmp12" via the FM-server 15 on my MacBook Pro without problem and suddenly today this file can't be found anymore, although it is still on the server. But it shows that the status is "Closed", so I probably should change this to "Normal" or something else. Sorry for my ignorance, but I can't figure out how to do this. I tried with "open" and "open all", but this doesn't help me.
      Thanks for any help,

      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,
      </ 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
      Some idea?

      My client is using FM Server 14. On it I have a web form that is accessible to the public. It requires no user name or's entirely open via guest login.
      I have server scripts that import the data entered into a broader ticketing solution that is locked down. The tickets are then deleted in the guest-accessed file. We are now looking at upgrading to FM Server 15 and the new licensing model.  I have a sinking solution that this kind of approach is untenable with FM's new paradigm.
      Is this approach broken w/FM Server 15...requiring me to use something like Google Forms for data capture?

      I am running a server script periodically (every hour lets say) which does some database maintenance, uploads some files, etc. I do this on a number of Filemaker Servers (latest server version running on Windows machines) without problems…except for one server. On this server I use scriptmaster to up load some large files into containers as they are generated from scientific instruments. The problem is that the server runs seems to run out of RAM memory after a "few" days. I think this is the only thing that this server does differently than the other 4 servers and feel that this is the problem. My question is…is there a way to "flush" memory used by the plugin or by the FM server. Has anyone else experienced something similar or am I barking up the wrong tree? Thanks.

      I may need to put my FM server in the but still retain the need to sync back to an internal Oracle db behind a corp firewall. Can MS support such a configuration? If not what would be required to make it work?
