Problem with Open Remote Sharing...

I have about 20 workstations at my office, each with their own seperate liscence. Computer1 hosts DatabaseA with Sharing on - Computer1 shows up in everyone else's Open Remote Dialog, however the file doesn't show up (In case you ask, the checkbox for "don't show this file in open remote" isn't checked). However, if I host DatabaseA on Computer2, 3, 4, etc, it will appear in everyone's Open Remote, including Computer1. Any ideas why this would be happening?

as an aside: with 20 workstations you really should be using FileMaker Server. Better performance, better backup capabilities.

As to the problem: check the usual suspects:

- firewall settings on computer #1 (although that should also prevent the fm host to show up)

- swap out the network card and/or network cable on computer #1

- do some network troubleshooting like ping, etc to see if there are delays in network traffic to and from computer #1
