IWP Server Ports 80 & 591 Configuration

6 posts in this topic

We are a summer camp and will be deploying Parent Accounts through IWP and would like to use port 591.  The problem is I can't figure out how to configure Filemaker Server to listen on port 591.  Port 80 is being used so it makes sense to use the alternate - but how??  The firewall is configured properly to port forward 591. 

 

We have no problem accessing the IWP database on the LAN using port 80 (haven't been able to test outside yet - as I stated above port 80 is in use) but when I change the port in the IP address to 591 - http://LAN.ip:591/fmi/iwp/res/iwp_home.html - nothing.  

 

I have searched but I can't find where to configure ports in Filemaker Server.

 

Here is what we are using:

 

Windows Server 2003 - latest SP & build

Filemaker Server Advanced 12 - latest build 

 

Thank you!

Jim

The configuration change is made in IIS, not in FIleMaker Server.  Then through the Admin Console run the deployment for Web Publishing and select IIS as the web server.  There are other options other than using Port 591.

Thanks Steven - I'll let you know how we go.  What other options are you referring to?

A second external public IP address can be forwarded to the NAT address of the server using Port 80.  You can then call the databases with that address.  What other use is Port 80 encumbered with on this machine anyway?

As Steven is saying: if you have an existing website running on port 80, that does not prevent IWP from using the same port.  The FM traffic will be redirected by IIS to the IWP pages automatically through the URL syntax noted in red below:

Update:  My problem had nothing to do with a port conflict.   It was an IIS security setting where the Default Website (this is installed with IIS) -> Properties -> Directory Security tab ->  Ip address and Domain Restrictions had a denied access setting for 127.0.0.1 Once I cleared this and set all the Child dependencies to update to this setting (a dialog box will pop asking if you would like to update these dependencies) - boom smooth as silk.  Everything is working great now.

      Hello, I am using l am filemaker 15 pro advanced in windows 10 computer (64 bit, 8gb ram).  I buy it few week ago and i converted my database from the old version fm5. The database work properly but it is very slow to open, about 60 second or more. I am working as standalone (no remote connection). I noted thta if the PC is offline (no network or internet connection) the database open in less that 6 second. It is very strange because I have not any ip configuration and any sharing option... what can be the problem?
      Thank you in advance

      LS,
      We recently migrated from FM14 to FM15 and suddenly some invoices come out strange after the saveAsPdf script step . ( see pic ). When in preview mode everything  seems to be ok and is printed to a printer ok.
      Theme : Classic, Font used : Calibri size 11 and 12.
      Problem occurs on Mac 10.11 and Win10 with FM15.
      When I do a print ( to preview ( mac )) and then save as pdf everything is also ok, so it seems to be related to the FM pdf renderer.
      However, not every invoice has this issue, but I wonder how data could cause this behaviour.
      Best regards !

      Hello,
      I'm very new to this program and need some assistance in creating a database. I've been watching Guy Steven's YouTube videos and I've learned as much as I could. I'm trying to create a "table" (where I can list specific medications) and a "checklist" (descriptions with "completed" buttons on each end of each row) in a section of my layout where I've created multiple tabs. I'd like to create a table under "Medications" and a checklist under "Checklist". 
      Would anybody be so kind to give me some pointers? I've never worked with databases before so I'm learning everything on my own via the internet. It'd greatly be appreciated.
      Thanks in advance,
      Briana

      Hello,
      We have a WebDirect solution where customers can log in to a personal account and make payments via credit card.   This  solution was developed as an IWP solution in FMP 12 running on Filemaker Server 12 Advanced using the Troi URL plugin to connect to the Nelix Transax gateway.  Worked flawlessly.
       
      We have recently upgraded to Filemaker Server Advanced 13.05 and have hit a wall with the Trio URL plugin.  The plugin fires fine on the server-side using FMP.  However when run through WebDirect - nothing happens.   
       
      I have installed the plugin exactly how the Troi website describes:  http://www.troi.com/...e-plug-ins.html
      I uninstalled and reinstalled Filemaker Web Publishing Engine.  
      Looking at the Trio log files (attached) it is obvious that the Fiilemaker Web Publishing engine is not recognizing the plugin.   
      We are running Filemaker Server on a Windows 2008 R2 64bit machine.  And we have installed the correct *.fmx64 files in the appropriate folders.
       
      Any advice?
      Thank you for your help!
