  1. Hello, Stange situation here. After reinstalling FMS15 to resolve an issue, one of my FMPA clients on just one of my computers displays "connection failed" when trying connect to the available databases on the server when trying to connect with the local ip adresse. All while several other computers have no problem doing the same. The FMPA client that has the issue has no problem connect to available databases via an external ip address. I have never seen this before and can't find any meaningful information on this by googling. Would anyone have any idea what's going wrong here? The error appears to be (51) on FMS.
  2. Hi everyone. Could be something already solved years ago, but I only noticed it happening in version 14 and not in version 13 or older. Sometimes at random for no apparent reason the server would drop the connection to clients and this connection can almost immediately be re-established. Not a huge problem except it's annoying. I tracked it down to Time Machine interfering with the main live Databases folder. Excluding that particular folder from backups in Time Machine preferences solved the problem. Thought I'd let everyone know just in case. PS. Don't tell me that TM is bad and stuff. It's an implementation issue ("a bug", if you're feeling kind today), not an issue of TM as a general idea.
  3. Hi everybody, I have trying to combine data from a MySQL source with my local FM database using a shadow table with ESS connector. Basically I have done a Point Of Sale (POS) that gets the data from a MySQL database (it contains the information about the products, prices, stock, etc). I have two problems: 1. I have done an script that connect to this shadow table when I insert a barcode for a product and extract the information about that product. If I open the FM solution and initially run the script, the process is too slow but if I go firstly to the shadow table and then I run again the script, in that case the process is faster. I have solve this problem using and script that goes briefly to the shadow table (when I open the application) before returns to the main layout. Is there other alternative more elegant? 2. Certain products are duplicates in the database and have different barcodes. If I insert one of these barcodes, a floating panel is shown, an script using ExecuteSQL query is run to show only this products (from shadow table). To do this query, I need to go to the shadow table and do a search in Find Mode and then run again the ExecuteSQL query. I think that both problems are related and I suppose that I need to optimize the connection to MySQL shadow table. Could anyone help me to enhance it? Do I need to include any other step in the scripts to establish or maintain the connection to the MySQL database? Thank you very much, Wardiam
  4. Hi to all.  This is my first post and I do not know much about FileMaker . I will try to be as clear as possible to explain my problem , here's an idea of the network I plan to do:    I haven't done anything yet because I would like to have you opinion before I start this project , any advice is welcome.  I want to use FileMaker as BDD for my business which includes: A main Office with a large storage space and two stores with smaller stock . My bute is to manage inventory , invoices, customer ID... from each outlets in "real time" or even by daily updated direcly on the main DB in the office.  My questions are : What happens if one of the servers is temporarily deprived of it's internet connection?  Will it be possible to work on the DB localy  and then apply the changes on the "host" database when the connection is back?  What configuration do you advise in this case ?  ( In the future the database will be linked to a website from the office).  Thank you in advance for your advises and apologize for the lack of clarity.  cordially Thomas Royer .
  5. I am using FMStudio for FileMaker 12 with Dreamweaver CS6. I am getting the error FileMaker Error: 18 Client must provide account information. I have logged in using my FMServer admin credentials, my FileMaker files user credentials and still get this error. Any ideas out there? Thanks.
  6. I am looking for some advice for having users remotely connect to our database for data entry only. Originally, we used IWP, but it was frustrating because we have a number of fields that use value lists with related values (the second field would be dependent on what has been selected from the previous field) and with the IWP we had to commit the record by pressing save in order for it to "refresh" and populate the next field's value list. This made data entry take too long. Currently, we have FM 11 Server on one server, and we have all of the user licenses living on a Mac Mini. Users access the Mac Mini through Share Screen/Remote Desktop and use the Open Remote feature to open the database. However, often there is a slight lag, as with any remote desktop. We use AquaConnect so that multiple users can log into the Mac Mini at once and not share the same screen. Are we complicating this too much? Is there a better way we could be allowing users to remotely connect to our database? Thanks for your help! Arbel
