removing server from desktop

Recommended Posts

I am really new to AppleScript but am pretty ok with Filemaker.

I have developed an extensive school student tracking database which teachers in my school use to enter grades, write reports etc. The difficulty I have is that although teachers now log out of the database and close it down correctly so that pupils can not see it, the server is still on the desktop and must be dragged to Trash (some folk are not good ateremembering to do this!) Is there any way of getting AppleScript to remove the server as the database is quit?

Thanks for any help

If you are hosting your databases on a server (either FMServer) or FM Client, then they should not be able to share the server (ie see the drive of the server on their desktop).

File Sharing should be turned off on the server.

They should connect to the database via the hosts option in the file open command.
