    Installation ports

    I have been having major problems after installing FMS 17 and the new MirrorSync. First, it said web server was not running. After hours of searching, I found that I needed to forward port 42424. Now I need to reconfigure the Mirrorsync configuration file. I have the IP's set as different and they are correct but MirrorSync is saying that the MirrorSync server at the IP address is not accessible on port 80. I had this same problem with FMS16 and I got around it by selecting port 8080. Now, we can't do that!!! How am I supposed to get MirrorSync running like this?

    Can't Find MirrorSyncUpdater.fmp12

    I may have a solution to the missing MirrorSyncUpdater but, the problem is not completely resolved. I deleted Filemaker Go and downloaded a new version. I then downloaded the file from the URL and performed a sync. I then changed the version number in the server file and performed another sync on the iPad. The sync worked, it reported a new version was available and then it proceeded to download the new file. Everything appeared to be working but after a few tries, it failed. After the URL transfer was complete ( blue progress bar all the way across) the file hung. The progress bar disappeared and I had the option to "Continue" (on the right side) or, "Previous/next" (on the left side). Clicking these buttons did nothing. The little spinning wheel continued to go around but nothing was happening. I left it for maybe 10 minutes. It then opened the new file and asked me to put in my credentials. This may be the reason why I deleted it before - it appeared to be doing nothing. I did this twice and the same thing happened each time. If one of my clients was doing this he would become rather frustrated and end up doing all sorts of things. It may be an idea to include a message to say that the file should not be closed and to leave it alone to do its thing?? Warn the user that even though nothing "appears" to be happening, it is doing something. Tell the client not to click any of the blue buttons and not to close down FileMakerGo. In the previous version of FilemakerGo the MirrorSyncUpdater file was not showing on the device, nor the recent tab. I may have deleted it several days back without realising it. Jesse, you may need to include in your script a check to ensure MirrorSyncUpdater is installed on the iPad. If not - install it. I think it would be even safer to hide this file from the user so that he cannot inadvertently delete it. Another point of note. When the iPad had completed the download of the new version it opened the newly downloaded file. On the Mac using Filemaker Pro advanced, it closed the file off and I had to manually open up the new version from the Finder. This is a great feature and is better than the one I had developed. Mine worked but, it did not delete the old file and replace it with the new. I guess I could have done this if I had a bit more time up my sleeve.

    Hi Jesse and Ocean West, Have anyone found a resolution to this problem? I have the exact same issue.

    Can't Set Up MirrorSync

    So when this happens I am stuck without any means of syncing? This happened to me on at the end of the week and with time differences between Australia and the US it means that I can't get a resolution until basically Tuesday the next week (today). I have just tried a sync and now I get another error saying that I can only have records in Filemaker Go or Pro if I have an exact copy of the file. I am assuming that is because I have added records over the weekend and I now can't sync them? I now need to delete all my files and reload them from the server? That is going to take ages and I will need a good stable internet connection. I am currently in a very poor service area and using mobile data. All my data will be gone in no time. I guess my only answer to this is to give you a link to my One Drive file, you load it up on your end and you test it out form please.

    Can't Set Up MirrorSync

    Hi Jesse, I had MirrorSync working well on your server. I have signed up for a month at the moment. I made some major changes to my file and deleted the old one, installed a new and then I couldn't sync. The error that came up was that I didn't lacked privileges or the object was not found (screen shot attached). Tsiry this problem by restarting the MirrorSync Instance. I have again made changes, reloaded the file and edited the MirrorSync configuration file. The same error has come up. Tsiry replied to my report and stated that the problem could be solved in the same way but, she never gave me instructions on how I can restart the instance. How is this done from my end?

    Can't Set Up MirrorSync

    Yes, can you please ask Tsiry to set up the file I gave you. She has my password but I can send it again if required. This file is a bit different to the one she set up for me before. I will send her a reply to her previous email as well. Thanks for your help. I sincerely hope we can get this going soon!!

    Can't Set Up MirrorSync

    Hi Again Jesse, I am considering setting up my own server at home. How difficult is this? Can you give me an idea of what hardware and software I would need for this please.

    Can't Set Up MirrorSync

    Hi Jesse, Yes, I need help. This is driving me crazy. I know your system works and it is the sync solution I want to work with. Tsiry has been helping me out a bit but I am still getting nowhere fast. Tsiry did test this out on your server but because I do not have an account, I could not download the database to properly test out the syncing. I am now considering buying a good computer, putting Filemaker server 16 on it, installing the MirrorSync client on that and then doing it all from my home. This is going tobe an expensive exercise and a very time consuming one as well. Not to mention that I will have to learn how to instal and run the server and the MirrorSync side of things. In hindsight, it may have been easier for me to learn how to make my own syncing solution. I don't know if the problem is the server or the way I have setup the database. Can you please have a good look at this and help out? This is the one drive link to my file: https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ap_yV4dRFSjEgsV-rL0nEe9ag0nt8g I can send the password to you in a separate email if you want.
  9. I have been trying to set up MirrorSync with my database. I am fairly sure I have followed the instructions but when I try to up all my sync tables I get an erroras shown in the attachment. The are 24 tables in total. I have tried a shared server 14 in Sydney from FMPHosts for several weeks. I contacted MirrorSync and they think it may be the server speed. I and am now trying a dedicated server 16 also from FMPHosts and still getting the same errors. I have checked all the tables to ensure there is a creation timestamp, modification timestamp and created by field. There were a few tables that had a modified field and I thought this may be the problem. I removed those fields but it didn't fix the issue. Has anyone come across this before? Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong? Server error.tiff

    EasySync User name and Password

    Interesting. It wouldn't let me in one day and then the next, all was good!!

    EasySync User name and Password

    I have tried to use the Admin password but it won't let me in. Has this password changed recently? I can get in to the data entry only but that is useless when I need to make changes.

    Help with relational layout

    I am building a solution for a business that supplies 4 products. I need to have a layout that shows a portal with all the customers listed down the left and then 4 boxes across the row (one for each product) that a value is put in to show how much of each product the customer is ordering. The qty fields need to be live so that values can be updated on the run. They also need to create an invoice ( and update that invoice at each value change) for each company. I should also be able to enter a date in the search field to bring up past orders for that date and for all the listed customers. Can someone help me out with some ideas on how to do this?
