Remote connection problem in FileMaker Unlimited

I have FileMaker Server 5.5, and FileMaker Pro Unlimited 5.5 running on a Mac OS 9.1. When I chose open remote from another computer running FileMaker Pro 6 it finds the database on the server. When I go to the Mac to open the remote database there is nothing listed. I thought this was funny because the database is sitting on the Mac but I can't even see the computer. What's the deal?

FileMaker Version: 6

Platform: Windows XP

Howdy, howdy! Hmmm... I'm going to guess that since you seem to be a Windows person, you may be unaware that older Macs (OS9) have 2 choices for FileMaker networking, AppleTalk and TCP/IP. Try checking the FileMaker Application Preferences and see which it is on... my guess is the former. Make the change, quit, and open it again and you should be in business. If not, I guess it's something else.

Good luck!
