Gday, We are running FM server 16 with FM pro 16 and FM Go 16 clients. We have do not use SSL certs as yet. When opening databases on the go client, the user is presented with a dialog stating that the connection is not secure and would they like to proceed. Secondly, programmatic access to the server is failing due to this new error being returned from the first "ping" of the server. I understand this is normal behaviour but obviously we want to get rid of this. We need to sign our server. The problem is that it is used on the intranet only and CA's will not sign machines that are not public facing. We will not be making our server public facing. What are the best practices surrounding getting this machine certified? Any help appreciated.
I am working on a project which requires me to make SOAP calls from FileMaker. I have successfully done that in the past thanks to ScriptMaster ability to handle that. It works beautifully. The new project now requires me to include a client certificate - issues by the SOAP API provider - in each requests. The documentation on their side is fairly scarce ("Install the certificate on your host" !). I have no idea how to handle that but something tells me that there is no reason why it would not be possible to "include" the certificate in the Groovy bit of the plugin... Any idea anyone ? Thanks
Juan David Gil posted a topic in External Server AuthenticationI have an Active Directory for user authentication for our FMP users. I, however, must use unencrypted connection because otherwise it does not work. I have tried and tested the same parameters on other solutions to authenticate against AD, and they work, but with FMS, it works only unencrypted. I read the Manual, it says that I must use a certificate, but my domain is '.local' and I don't understand why it needs a supported certificate for this matter. I did install a certificate for FMP so in order to avoid the annoying web direct security statement. All said, I have a Windows 2008 R2 level domain, with 3 servers to authenticate against. A dedicated FMS windows 2008 r2 server that belongs to the domain. What must I do?
I'm having a devil of a time getting FMS14 in good shape. I'm looking for help installing a certificate, but also including a couple of details in case they inspire any other good advice. FMS is hosting my twenty databases and my organization's employees are reaching them without a hitch. It's also true that I can see a sample database via WebDirect. FileMaker customer support has told me that that means the software is installed correctly and there's nothing else they can do to help me. It's also true that when I use Remote Desktop Connection to remote in to the terminal, I can administer FMS (because I'm effectively sitting in front of it) . . . but that I can't administer it from a browser window in my own terminal. One of the browser errors I get involves Secure Connection Failed, so I'm hoping that an SSL install will solve the problem. I'm in over my head, though. In the WinServer 2008 IIS Manager, I have generated & installed a self-signed certificate. In the same interface, I'm using the command Create Certificate Request to generate the CSR to send to GeoTrust. I have no idea what value goes in the field Common Name (which I guess would be a domain, right, if I were tied to DNS? Is it the terminal's MAC address?) I don't want to take a stab in the dark.
