"Opener File" not working

On a network running Windows 2003 server, one user is accessing via Terminal Services. All works fine, except that for one issue.

An "Opener script" has been created that connects to a hosted database that uses FileMaker Server 5.5. This works on all the LAN stations, but does not work on the station connecting by terminal services.

Any ideas anyone?

FileMaker Version: 6

Platform: Windows XP

My guess is that the Terminal Server is not looking at the FM server as a local host. You probably need to change the opener file and use the IP address of the server - which should be a static IP address.

Unless the FM server is a local host, just using the server name will not work unless you have a DNS server resolving the name. "hard-wire" the IP address in the opener file - that should do it.
