I am using FM Server 15 on MacOS (10.11.15), and trying to get SuperContainer to work with Web Direct clients. I am having several issues using the Web Direct clients, so I hope someone can help me.
1. First of all, which installation option do I use?
I am referring to the SC Documentation http://docs.360works.com/index.php/SuperContainer#Option_1:_Using_SuperContainer_as_a_standalone_server_application:
Option 1: Using SuperContainer as a standalone server application
Option 2: Installing SuperContainer with FileMaker Server
In both scenarios, I can see FM Server being depicted. What are the pros and cons of using each one?
2. Which http port to use?
Option 1: port 8020?
Option 2: port 80? Do I specify port 80 when I run SuperContainerServer.jar? I get the error message "Could not start/stop SuperContainerProtocol handler initialization failed: java.net.BindException: Permission denied:80." What is the reason for this? Is it because I am using the trial version?
I followed the instructions for Option 2. I am unable to use the Mac installer in the SuperContainer zip file. The installation hangs: "Installing latest 360Works Admin application. Installing 360Works Tomcat daemon...". Then I tried to follow the manual installation instructions. I copied the SuperContainer folder into: /Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/jwpc-tomcat/ . Then I added 2 lines into the mod_proxy.conf file in /Library/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-helper/WEB-INF/conf/:
ProxyPass /SuperContainer http://127.0.0.1:16020/SuperContainer
ProxyPassReverse /SuperContainer http://127.0.0.1:16020/SuperContainer
According to the documentation, this is supposed to "modify the tomcat configuration files to serve SuperContainer content on port 80". Are the steps correct? According to the documentation, adding these two lines is supposed to Modify the tomcat configuration files to serve SuperContainer content on port 80?
The reason I need help to check with the installation is because I am having issues using SCSetBaseURL and SCGetInfo on my web clients. (I did copy the SC companion plug-in into /Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/cwpc/Plugins.) Thanks in advance for some guidance!

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?

The Insert PDF context menu item is greyed out on my container field when I have my database open locally. My Google Fu has failed me on solving this.
My container field is on a layout, not in a portal. I have Interactive Content checked. I have a PDF viewer working in IE. (Zeon - I do not know where I got this plugin - I very rarely use IE.). I also have an older version of NitroPDF Pro which I use daily, but no IE plugin at the moment. The container field Storage settings are "Store container data externally" and using Open storage option. I also tried the secure storage option which was the default. I have FM Pro 14.0.4 and this database is not converted from earlier version. I am using Windows 10 I can drag and drop a PDF into the container and I get the PDF icon, but it is not interactive However it is interactive (both native and WebDirect) when I upload the database to FM Server - which is also my local computer for now. But in all cases Insert PDF is greyed out. The only other solution that the web has coughed up it to use the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader which is not an option - I refuse to use that piece of #$@&.
What else can I try?
