Researching FMGo in Windows Domain

Recommended Posts

Hi All. 

I'm trying to understand how this works in my environment.  We have Filemaker 13 Server, with FM Pro and FM Pro Adv clients.  We are in a Windows Server 2012 Domain.  

So if I get an Ipad and connect it to the network, then download and install FM go, how does it connect to the FM server?  will there be a problem with the Domain? The Ipad doesn't join the domain. Since it isn't joined, it also wouldn't be able to access the fileserver to view PDFs on the fileserver.  is this correct?

Extra question non-FM.  What concern do you have with the Ipad being hacked?  The Ipad would be on the network (even if it didn't get fileserver access).  It could cause a security issue.  

thanks, not sure if I'm correct on these things.  so let me know if I'm wrong.

Scott

      I'm using FileMaker 12 but want to get a version that syncs via free iCloud or Dropbox type service (you can only do it manually in FM12). What is the earliest version that does this? Its for personal use and I don't have much money so I just want to get a cheap older version of FM but want it to sync across all my devices.

      FM go 17 does not see any files running on FM Cloud 17/AWS even though said files are running, an authenticated user is accessing the files via FM17 and WebDirect works without issue. Any help on this would be terrific as FM Cloud 17 is running, thank god, without problems.

      Filemaker clients can access remote files but FileMaker go cannot. These setups previously worked. What can be blocking fm go?

      I currently have a button that exports the current record in excel format on my Mac desktop. When I use Filemaker go on my iPad this button does nothing.
      Ideally I would like that button to recognize the iPad as the device being used and create a script to export to iCloud desktop
       
      Is this even possible?
       
      Thanks
