[ MacOS X / WebViewer issue ] Viewing PDFs in FileMaker’s WebViewer


Recommended Posts

I can ping my PDF document server from Terminal, I can connect to the PDF document server from all browsers apart from Safari, my default web browser is FireFox, I also tried to change to Chromium and Opera as the default web browser. WebViewer has the same symptoms as Safari, server not found.

$ ping -nc 1 document
PING document (10.0.0.7): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 10.0.0.7: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.002 ms

--- document ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.002/0.002/0.002/0.000 ms

FileMaker says ’Couldnot connect to the server.’

The issues is easily solved by creating a new MacOS X user, and log in to that user, however I would rather like to fix the current user not having to migrate all other application settings. Is there some dns cache specific to Web Viewer and Safari?

Valid point. What puzzles me is how creating a new Mac OS X account and running FileMaker from within this new account will not have this same issue as described above. Any thoughts?

      Dear users,
      I have three tables for three relevant layouts. Each one has separate table and tables are related with only one field.
      The scope is to show on the 2nd and 3rd layout the records that related with the 1st one. Here are some screen shots with what I need to do. Actually, I need to have on the seconf layout ("Orders from suppliers") the related records from the first one ("Suppliers list")
      Thank you thank you

      I find it odd that FileMaker is so intuitive yet hides access to the file name of the data source during importing. It looks like the only way I have found based on posts on the forum is to import the Data Source file as a reference into a container field. That is an extra step that shouldn't have to be done since FileMaker sees the Source file name during multiple points in the import process. Here are three dialogs where it's seen during import. There has to be a way to use the input file name with some kind of Get Function.  Please help!

      I previously used ODBC Manager (32 bit)  to great success importing data directly from Filemaker Server to JMP. I recently upgraded to Catalina (MacOS 10.15.5) and knew that one of the casualties would be this ODBC utility. I downloaded the 64 bit ODBC manager from Actual Technologies and successfully installed it but get the following message when trying to open an FM database from within the ODBC interface in JMP:
      dlopen(/Library/ODBC/FileMaker ODBC.bundle/Contents/MacOS/fmodbc.so, 6): image not found
      I have navigated to Actual Technologies' web site believing I should download an ODBC driver but this comes at a hefty price tag, especially when converted to my local currency. Given the increasing costs of maintenance contracts and SSL certificates I had hoped to avoid further expenditure. Do I really need this and is there an alternative?

      I've been saving various files - mostly pdfs - in FM container fields, for years. A script triggered by clicking in the field allowed the field to be exported for viewing.
      Recently I upgraded to FM18, and now when I click in the field, I'm told "container fields cannot be exported"!
      Is there a new way that I should be doing this? Thanks.

      On a clean install of Filemaker server 18 on a windows box running W10 Enterprise edition. 
      The hosted files shows "Opening" from the Admin console, and that is how far it can go. The files never get opened.
      Have done couple of restarts but same problem. 
      Have tried both encrypted and non encrypted files, same problem.
      Any advice on what might be the cause?
