I have a question about hosting my filemaker database. If I buy a license for 5 people form here: https://store.filemaker.com/filemaker-cloud , will I also need to purchase 5 normal FileMaker 16 Pro Client licenses so people can actually connect to the database? I don't quite understand how this works yet, maybe someone can help me out. Do I get the client licenses with the purchase of a server license? I need 5 people to be able to access it. Thanks in advance,
I'm trying to upload a new solution to FMS. When I attempted to connect using the saved credentials, it threw the error "Invalid name/password. Please try again." Unfortunately, the login pane was grayed out, so I could not make any changes. So, I went into Keychain Access and deleted the credentials. Now, there are no saved credentials, but I am still unable to access the login pane. I see my server in Local Hosts, the IP address is correct, and I can access the Admin Console. But I can't log in to upload. I have managed to lock myself out of my own server. How embarrassing is that?
Please bear with me; I'm a graphic designer learning to develop for my company when I have time. My boss bought me a copy of FMPA14 because I had heard our FMS12 could still host it, but I'm getting an SSL error when I try to connect to the server from FMP14. We have FMS12v04 on an old G5 running OS X Lion and it can't be upgraded any further. I've been researching this a bit and I found links to update FMS12 to v09 (I think?) which I haven't done yet. We all connect to the server with our workstations via LAN. We don't use FMGo or XML or anything like that (at this point). Is there a workaround or an option I can turn off somewhere? I don't want to buy an SSL certificate and I wouldn't know what to do with it if I had one. Thanks!
I am having a hard time accessing my database via remote open and vpn. Actually I ‘ve never been able to find the computer serving the db at the office (a mini) as a local host. And that despite being inside the vpn and being able to mount server shares and the like. Oh, and I am on a mac.
Anyone have any clue on what could be happening under the hood?
(p.s. this isn't fms 13 specific, I 've had it with 12 server too)
Is there any way to create an Excel download for an IWP connected user? I've thought about have a script that creates a flag and have a client on the server that run periodically and looks for the flag and emails the Excel file to the user. The problem is that the file needs to "Replace" the old file and that doesn't seem to function properly. I get an error message.
