WestCoaster Posted February 25, 2005 Share Posted February 25, 2005 Hi all, if answers to this subject already have been posted affluently I'd like to apologize beforehand. Can anybody explain to me what a typical setup would look like where remote FileMaker users connect to a FileMaker Server via Windows Terminal Services? How would I setup a Terminal Service in Windows 2000/2003? Do I need Windows Server Edition or will a "regular" Windows 2000/2003 do? What exactly do I have to install within that Terminal Service? A FileMaker Client or a FileMaker Server? (It is my understanding so far from posts I saw here that the FileMaker Server resides on a separate machine and a FileMaker client goes in the Terminal Service). How can then connect the FileMaker which is running inside that Terminal Service to the local FileMaker Server? Is the Terminal Service capable of seeing FileMaker Server as a network service (through port 5003)? How would I then be opening the database files that I want the remote user to be able to connect to? How can I "see" the FileMaker files within the Terminal Service and share them? Do I have to open any FileMaker databases within Terminal Service? Is it advisable to install the FileMaker Server on the machine where the Terminal Service operates? And finally how would the remote user open the database? By just going the regular way via "Open -> Hosts" and then entering the IP address of the Terminal Server? Needs the Terminal Server to be in the DMZ or can I just unblock port 5003? Or another port (does Terminal Service have a port on its own)? Any answers highly appreciated. Also if anyone could point me to the direction as to where I can find information on this I'd be very glad.
