Hello,

I'm running mac os x , apache and trying to use Filemaker's Web companion tool to publish my databases online.I tried to change web companion's port number to 591 ( instead of 80 ) but It keeps

giving me the same error

"The web companion connot share files over the web because it does not have enough memory or TCP/IP networking could not be

started."

I don't think the problem is with memory and my TCP/IP connection is always on ( i use an ethernet connection ). Please let me know how i can get rid of this problem ? Could it be becuase of Apache ?

Thanks,

BBGOL

I'm using OS X with Apache and FMP. I'm using a high port number, however when I installed OS X I was prompted to allow the use of ports above a certain number (much greater than 591). Also, 591 maybe reserved for FMP client/host communications not http.

Try a different port number.

All the best.

Try a port number above 1024. Unix (OS X) reserves port numbers below that for system (root) processes. Above that is open for user programs. (The limit might be 1000 or 1023 rather than 1024, I'm a little fuzzy on the exact detail, but this is the general concept.)

Yeah, I'm not running it now, but when I tried the 5.5 Demo for OS X I had to use a really high port number, it might have been 1024, but it could have been even higher.

FMP should tell you when you first try to configure the web companion.

No, 591 is registered port by FileMaker Inc for web serving, but you can use any port. Just be not surprised, when it will collide with another service -- at your side or visitors.

For registration of ports see IANA database.
