FMU Limits?

H all

Can someone please advise what are the 'limits' to the so called 'unlimited' version of Filemaker.

I have a solution that has 36 files in total hosted, guests that access it (via FM standard) only open the files they need, which may be from five to ten each (I have it set up to close off files no longer required after login etc to minimise open files on the user end (concurrent connections)), but I have just struck a host limit error - haha - so much for unlimited!

Ok on from that will FM Server solve my problem?

Hi, FMPro unlimited is exactly the same as the FileMaker desktop client with the artificial IP address limit removed. All its other limits are the same as the desktop version. (13-1 of the manual)

If you're sharing the files as multi-user and having clients log in with FMPro, you really need FileMaker server. It's a huge step up as a workgroup database server and performance is much better than client sharing.

Fortunately yes the organisation pays for it, and no I can't share any money with you smile.gif

And really its not that costly when you think of what it could cost to do this in other DB applications - this is why I love FM so much smile.gif, I just think that FMU is miss-titled - its not really 'Unlimited' is it smile.gif but for webserving my files well I can't complain really.

Yeah, it's actually not that expensive. Oracle will cost you anywhere from 9000 to 25,000. I was just hoping someone would want to contribute to the Help Ken Get A New House Fund. grin.gif

I just wish that FMI would sell FileMaker, and you can buy the extra stuff separate. For example if you already have FM pro, you could buy the Unlimited module or Developer module. But its not set up that way
