Mac OS X with FMP 5.5 and Unlimited

Actually I have both FMP 5, and FMP Unlimited 5.

FMP Unlimited comes with 2 CD's one is a standard FMP 5 CD, only it has an "unlimited" serial number, and the other CD has several version of the WSC (Web Serer Connector).

I have used the FMP5 CD that came with Unlim with the serial number from my standard FMP5, and it installed as a standard FMP 5 installation (10 IP / 12Hr limit).

This is why I'm guessing that the standard FMP 5.5 could be installed using the Unlim serial number.

Unless the 5, and 5.5 serial numbers are different formats/ranges.

If anyone is actually able to test this, let me know.

Also the other reason I thought that this may work is that my FMP 5 Unlim WSC _WAS_ able to connect and use databases hosted on FMP 5.5 Demo for OS X.

(*note the demo lists "IP Guest Limit: Unlimited") so technically the 5.5 Demo is of PART of the Unlimited package that hasn't been released yet.

I guess what I'm saying is that when you shell out the $999 for Unlimited you're really paying for the WSC and the Unlimited Serial Number.

So since FMI's already got my cash for the SN, and the WSC (which does work with the 5.5 demo on OS X). They should be happy to recieve the additional cash for a 5.5 upgrade form me, and it should all work.

However if it doesn't I've got no need for a 10 IP / 12Hr version of FMP, so I'd like to hear from someone that has the capacity to test this before I send another hard earned bundle to FMI.

      We are currently evaluating FileMaker Pro Unlimited for use within our company, and have found very few resources available other than marketing info. I have not been able to find any tools or utilities that would allow printing of various defined layouts from within the browser. Is the browser's print command the only method of printing from within the browser?
      Assistance would be much apprecitated.

      Im just wondering if it is possible to keep text formatation on when listing out a field from filemaker on to the web.
      If I wanted to have sections with section headings that are in bold and the rest of the text not bolded, and also different size on the headings, can that be done, if so, what is the command for doing it?`
      listing out with ,break, html, raw etc didnt work.

      My boss wants to use Filemaker Pro to link faxed-in paper forms which are scanned in and converted to PDFs with additional information. The PDF needs to be linked via a reference # to additional information fields and e-mailed to an order processor.
      A customer should be able to login and view the forms with the additional information.
      Any ideas?

      Has anyone been able to get the Web Server Connector (On Apache & OSXS) to utilize the we security Database?
      My Passwds all work great if I connect directly to the Mac (OS 8.6) running FMP Unlimited, but when I try to use them through the Web Server Connector I keep getting errors about not being able to access format file xxxxx.html (from past experience I know this error usually means the pass authentication failed).
