(Long story short.) I'm moving a complex solution from a local network to a hosted service. The solution uses (and needs to use) external authentication. In order to divorce the solution from the local network completely, we will no longer be using our active directory on the local network. Setting up security groups and users on the hosted server and configuring FM server to authenticate against it was very easy. Only one problem remains, How can users change their passwords? This isn't really a Filemaker question as the question becomes, how can you let a user change their password on windows servers if they do not have desktop access(on the server)? I have done a couple of google searches and found enough to know I could write some sort of custom solution (or likely adapt one that is already out there) but before going down that rabbit hole.... I thought I would ask the helpful people here.
Hello, I need to open existing PDF(s) that are located on a windows server from a layout. I'm able to open the files manually from the volume disk on my desktop without any issues.. I have a button with the following script: Open URL: Table1::FIELD1 Breakdown: Sample PDF name: 5554B.pdf Field1 contains path and filename: smb://SERVERNAME/pdf/5554B.pdf (calculated field: "smb://SERVERNAME/pdf/" & Table1::FIELD1 & FIELD2 & FIELD3 & ".PDF" ) Field2 contains numeric portion of PDF name. Field3 contains letter in PDF name. When I click the button, a new OS X window opens up showing the server folder with all the PDFs. Highlighting the PDF specified from FM but it does not open it up to view its contents. Thank you in advance for your help. System Info: Filemaker Pro 13 MacBook Air OS X Windows Server
Is Filemaker Pro Advanced compatible with Windows Server 2008? I am attempting to set up a small extranet to share a Filemaker Pro databases with a small number of clients who will access the database using both client versions of Filemaker and also and browsers to access Instant Web Publishing (which is unavailable on Filemaker Server). I am able to run FM Pro Advanced version 11 on the Windows Server 2008 but clients are unable to "see" the FM databases hosted on the server.
