sso onto shared databae

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We just bought a FM Server 8 which will host our database on a LAN. Now I have to install FM Pro 8.5 on each workstation.

What I want to happen is:

Each staff member starts his workstation, logs onto his user account and automatically FM Pro starts and logs onto the shared database on FM Server 8.

How do I organize this?

The FM Server is on a Windows XP, the users all use Windows XP.

Thanks,

Hans

For more info on Single Sign On, see the Server External Authentication Tech Brief.

Pg 52 would be a start.

I'd also get FileMaker Server onto a machine running a server OS, not a workstation OS. Namely, Windows Server 2003. You'll find that these external functionalities work much better that way.
