THERE ARE NO RULES except: do you get the performace you need?

There is one issue, to get the best performance, each one needs to be the foremost application. Obviously this cannot happen.

However, if you like the performance you are getting, then all the best to you!

If you like two 500MHz servers with a TCP/IP stack in between, then it's great. But just think that for the same price, you can run a dual 867MHz! I did a benchmark and with the specs above: it is 75% faster on the dual-processor machine.

The info about "frontmost application" is just b/s. Just nice (service) the two applications. Did you know tha "manframe" servers do run everything on the same "box"?

Not on Mac OS smile.gif" border="0 Server is faceless service on PC. On the other hand why server and Unlimited? Only if server is serving network of Clients and also Unlimited for HTTP access. PCs are datacrunching machines and if data are OK and not being corrupted, power of current machines and OS will yield great throughput for FileMaker.

Why both? Simple because I have many power users with fat clients and data entry or remote folks with browsers! You see, server has more options to manage connexions that regular FM PRO.

Have you tried it on OS X? Can you nice the two?

      Anyone else have this happen to them? Running an NT 4 sp6a box (256 MB RAMM, dual Celeron 400s) with FMPro 5 Unlimited, Web Connector to IIS SSL, Web Companion, and every week or so the FMPro quits on me. The app. has 9999k cache and is set to save every hour or when necessary. Any guesses at the problem? Don't think it is hardware ...

      I would like to install FM Pro 5 and FM pro unlimmited on 1 box. However, I want to only use the FM pro Unlimited for the web companant. Is this possible? If it isn't why wouldn't it, since only thing is being used is the FM Pro unlimited web componant.

      I've looked several places for this info and have been frustrated to no end. Can someone please tell me how to start and stop a database remotely (via the web) when using FMPro 5 Unlimited and the Web Companion!!!

      Can you run Server and Unlimited on one physical machine?
      We need to serve a number of databases to internal users plus some of them to the web. We currently have a variety of FM Pro 3.x & 4.x clients connecting to a FM Pro 4 machine (_not_ 4 Server) that has the databases shared out and the Web Companion enabled. But we need the multi-threading of FM Server and also want to upgrade to 5.
      Do we now need two physical servers, or can we stick with just one?
      The server in question is a B&W G3 with 256 MB of RAM, ample disk space, etc. so we're not as worried about the machine's ability to handle both but of both software products to be able to co-exist.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...
