If I am using Filemaker Unlimited AND FM Mobile and have a company of 60+ people who each have their OWN database that is web accessible (each different than the other), do I need to install my own runtime environment to be able to give them access to it, do I need to buy several copies of Unlimited, do I need to purchase a FM for each employee? Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying (of course) to keep costs down, but I would like something reliable and legal.

Thanks in advance.

60 databases is over the limit u can have open on a single client. The limit is 50

If this is the case you would require more than 1 databse client FMPro Unlimited) and connect them to your webserver with WSC (free with FMPro Unlimited).

With this amount of databases I would strongly recommend the use of FMPro Server!

Are you sure you need to run 60+ databases!!!!!!

Yes, I need that amount, maybe more very soon. So if I run FM server I wouldn't need the unlimited? Or would I still need multiple copies of FM Unlimited? I'm mainly just purchasing the software while a few of my employees may be doing the programming.

Thanks, you have all been so helpful so far (in the other forums as well!)

FileMaker Server hosts files to LAN/WAN for access by either FMP or FMP Unlimited. Web access (browsers) requires FMP Unlimited if you expect more than 10 unique hits per 12 hour period or if you are using middleware.

FM Server does NOT directly serve to web browsers.
