Network Sharing Confusion

I'm trying to share a FM 8 database (Windows) via TCP/IP ... peer to peer.

I have one computer as the host with the files in question opened - logged on as Admin with full privledges. I choose Edit >> Sharing >> FileMaker Network. I make sure turn it on. However whenever I change my selection for the "Do Not Display in Open Remote Dialog" that change does not stick.

Let me explain... if I make a change to the "Do Not Display in Open Remote Dialog" setting and then immediately attempt to "open remote" via another computer on the network I can see the files as set on the host and everthing works fine.

But if I wait a few minutes and try again (that computer or another) the file is not shown in the "open remote" dialog. I then open sharing on the host computer again and it has reverted the settings to not show files.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I've got the latest FileMaker version (v3) running on all machines.

Also whenI use "Open Remote" I can see the Local Host but the files just don't show up.

If I type the full path in the space provide ("Network File Path" at bottom) - fmnet:/192.168.0.5/lease.fp7 - it does open the file without a problem or warning.
