  1. thanks much! still, the link apears at another location inside this domain when I google for some keywords. http://attic.fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/217471/ I’d appreciate if you could remove this too, as the link in the post causes some trouble.
  2. Workaround: If the button you are using is in the same line as your portal record is (it then appears as many times as the portal records), clicking on it and executing in your script the step "go to related record" you will land on the active record in another layout and be able to read the data well.
  3. Hi, I have problems when double clicking on buttons which perform scripts in IWP. This is also described here by another person and me: http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/0ba793ee85#169408 It happens with certain scripts (not all the scripts) and then is reproducible. Here an example: I have a layout with a portal showing some related records. In the line of the related records I have a button which performs only one scripts step "go to related record" (Show only related record, match current record only), nothing else, as simple as possible. Clicking once via IWP all runs fine. Double clicking brings unpredictable results. Sometimes an error: "Record not found. The specified record was not found." Clicking on OK then FM jumps to the first of the related records. In other moments (just being on other record of the original layout, performing the same script) it occurs that the "Go to related record" just lands on another record which is not related at all (without the error message before). I can reproduce this in different layouts with this script step, the problem always occurs. I tried a workaround: Instead of using "Go to related record" performing a find (Go to Layout …, enter find mode, set field with data to find, perform find), but the same problem happens. I also tried setting a global variable to 0 before the script starts and to 1 at the end of the script, executing the script only when this variable is 1 (IF statement at the beginning of the script), this way trying to avoid that the script is performed twice. Still, the same error happens. IWP is running on FM Server 11 Advanced on Mac OS 10.6.8 on Intel Core 2 Duo 2,0 Ghz and 8 GB RAM.
  4. yes, that's how it worked then fine with IWP. thanks!
  5. the link: http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/74575-iwp-in-iframe-links-dont-work/ please delete.
  6. Hi, how can I edit or delete a post? It’s a post with no answers yet, so I hope deleting should be easy, but I can’t find this option. Thanks much, Raphael
  7. Creating a unique ID when the user logs in is too late. I could, in this moment, just take the users costumer number which would be unique in the database. What I had in mind was creating a unique ID before the user logs in. So, switching to CWP will indeed be the way, thanks for the the quick reply and helpful links!
  8. Hi, is there any way to get a session ID for an IWP session and write it into a record in the moment the record is being created? I’m trying to build a web shop based on IWP. Unidentified web users would click on links like “Add to Cart” to add articles. After that, the user would identify doing a login and continue with a payment procedure. In this moment, the articles in the cart have to be related to the correct user, and a way to identify which articles belong to which user would be having a session ID recorded. Thanks in advance for help, Raphael
  9. Hello, we´ve just bought 5 Windows Terminal Server CALs and installed them, with Windows 2003 Terminal Services Server, Filemaker Pro 8 (Vol. License) and Filemaker Server 8 all on one machine, which leads to the fact that FM crashes in the moment it opens the shared databases. Question 1: A little late, I found an observation in a techscript which says that FMS and Terminal Services Server should not be installed on the same machine. Is this a must, or exists a workaround in order to have all on one machine? (We have only 5 users, all in different cities, and our machine is a rented dedicated server, which we only can acess remotely, also for installations) Question 2 (related to the same configuration) In the same techscript it is described, that the installation of FM Pro should be done in the administrator account, using the windows "add program" option. Well, our FM Volume License came with 5 serial numbers. How can I enter all these, or is it not necessary? Before (see question 3), I installed FM Pro for each Remote User Account with an own serial). Additionally, I read the installation requires FM Pro Worldwide English (VLA or SLA). Is that a special, different Version from the one we have, saying, is there more then one type of VLA? Whatsoever, we have the German Version, does language make a difference here? Question 3: Before we installed the 5 Windows CALs and Terminal Services Server, we were using the two built in Remote Accounts that our decicated server offered. Running FMS8 and FM Pro 8 worked all fine, I could even install a remote desktop account for each of our users, each one with his own FM Pro serial, desktop etc. The only problem was that only 2 users could login at the same time, which is too less. So, is it really the Terminal Services Server that changes everything? It seems like something fundamental in the architecture has changed. Thanks in advance for professional advice, and all the outher heplful postings in this forum. Raphael
  10. hi, how can i open port 5003 manually on windows 2003 server? fm pro 8 doesn´t open it, and we want to share the database peer-to-peer. i tried to open both tcp and udp 5003 by using Local Security Polices - IP Filter Lists, but it apearently does´nt open the port.
  11. you can use filemaker pro, you´ll not need fmserver. but 1 fm pro license for each user. in the location with 2-4 users, the first user to open the database will be the host and provide the db for sharing. the clients will open it with "remote open". for the other location, just install fm in the usual way. or a runtime version...
  12. Sure, I meant WAN, not WLAN. Thanks for correcting ;-) So I´m checking out port 5003...
  13. Hello, I´d very much appreciate some help concerning the following configuration. We have a Windows 2003 Server and 5 Windows XP users spread over different countries, accessing the server over WLAN. We don´t have Filemaker Server, but a Filemaker Pro 8 Volume License for 5 users. So I installed FM Pro 8 on the server and configured the database for sharing. Then, on the client, I tried to open the database by “file remote open” over LDAP port 389, but FM doesn´t find the databases on the server. In the manuals I read that Filemaker Server has an option, where one can register FM to the LDAP, which seems to be necessary for the databases to appear when the clients accesses the LDAP port. FM Pro apparently doesn´t have such an option. Is that the reason why it doesn´t work over WLAN without having Filemaker Server? (I´ve tested all this in a LAN with local hosts, there it works fine). Thanks, Raphael
  14. Ok, i´ve found the answer myself ;-) The way is to use the “Assisted Install.txt” file, directory /files. Before each installation, just put the right data (username, serial etc.) in there, and set ApplicationUsers= OnlyCurrentUser. Do the installation like that under each windows profile. So everything works fine...
  15. Ok, i´ve found an answer so far ;-) The way is to use the “Assisted Install.txt” file, directory /files. Before each installation, just put the right data (username, serial etc.) in there, and set ApplicationUsers= OnlyCurrentUser. Do the installation like that under each windows profile. So everything could work fine. Anyway, I´d also like to try the "open remote file" version. My experience with a slow mode was Filemaker 5 Server installed on the remote server, and access by Filemaker 5.5 clients by "File Open Remote". Maybe with FM 8 it´s faster. As I understand it until now, I shall have one FM client running on the remote server, opening the database so that it can be shared, right? I did that, but when I acess the host by "File Remote Open", entering the IP, the databases don´t appear. I read something about port 5003. Shall I open it on the server and/or the client? Anything else to do? Thanks for replying, Raphael
