I'm trying to enable guest connection on a small network (5 Computers) and enable some databases to "read data-only " privileges, however when going to "define accounts & privileges" and check "guest" and click "allow" I am asked for a password. I don't ever recall setting a password. Is there a way to retrieve/set an admin password. I can just re-install the software and set it. Where exactly does one set his/her password on this software, is it at some point during installlation? I remember when I was asked to register it, I clicked "register later", maybe that was the part when I was supposed to set a password? Any advice would be appreciated :)

The default account name for a new file is "admin" with no password, that's all you have to enter.

Every FileMaker automatically gets an account of "Admin" with no password. This is also automatically entered into File Options so you don't see the password dialog when you launch the solution. When you add security to a solution, you should give the Admin account a password and remove the auto logon in File Options.
