web server not passing test
By Aussie John
Hi I am installing a new OSX server and FMS. During the deployment I can't get past the web server test with error: Test web server (http://127.0.0.1:81/fmi-test/test.xml): Connection refused
any thoughts - I turned off websites in the admin server. Funny I did this not so long ago and didn't run into this. Thanks in advance.
Admin Console Password incorrect (it's not)
FMS 13. Hardware crashed. File closed incorrectly, listed as 'closed' on server console. I've opened the file locally with a version of Pro, done the checks and now have a file that works and can be opened locally.
I log into FMS, using the console login and password, get access.
Then i try uploading the file via FMP - it checks the file then asks me for the admin login and password for the Console. That fails as 'incorrect login/password.' But it's not incorrect. I've logged in to FMS Console with that password, changed it, tried it, been refused as incorrect, then logged back in/out of console with the new password to put it back to the original one which also fails!
What is going on?
External Authentication Intermittently does not work.
I'm having an issue with external authentication lately. I'm running FMS 220.127.116.114 on OSX 10.9.4.
Intermittently external authentication seems to not let users in to the database. The server doing the authenticating is sitting right next to the filemaker server. Both on the same network. When I go to System Pref. > Users & Groups on the filemaker server, the network account server is green and appears to be connected.
I then do various things in FMS, turn the database server off/on, Go to Database Server > Security > Client Authentication and toggle the accounts dropdown from "FM and External" to "FM Accounts Only" and back again...THEN everyone seems to be able to get back in.
Any idea what my issue is?
Uploading to Container very slow (not port 443 issue...)
I have a database on a Filemaker 13 server.
Initially I was having trouble uploading to a container, as it started taking a VERY long time for small documents. This was due to port 443 not being open.
It is open for me now; however, I still get intermittent periods of slowness as if it isn't open.
What seems to happen is when I go to the server, to check if things are still open - nothing seems to have changed, but when I go back - the file uploads much faster.
The power saving settings on the server are disabled, but I think this slowness has something to do with when it goes to sleep. I'm not even sure what to look at or search for, it's so bizarre.
Little Snitch reports that I'm accessing port 443 with no difficulty re: my filemaker connection.
