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

Well I have at least discovered what the problem is.  My FM Pro clients and FM Go can connect to the Server from outside my local network, but not from within it.  Would anyone know how I can get my router to accept internal communications?  And not just external ones.

Are you using the same url inside as outside to connect to FMS? If so does the the url internally resolve to the internal IP address of the FM server or the external? Can you connect using the ip address?

I agree with the @OlgerDiekstra. If you use the IP address of the server it will probably work.

Getting your router to resolve the FQDN to the local IP address is different for different routers. Most routers will have a DNS Lookup section in the Configuration console, and you can just add the FQDN and IP address pair and it should work out.

      I’m trying to retrieve a street address after I’ve used the ‘location’ function to access the gps coordinates. This may be simple but all I’m stumped. Maybe there’s a beginners tutorial on how to use url’s To get what I need.

      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.

      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?
