Hi I have a FM 11 server running on a remote server on Mac XServe. I have a script that is "Native AppleScript" that look like this:

property rb_script : quoted form of "/echo_script.rb"

set record_id to cell "JPID" of current record

do shell script "ruby " & rb_script & " " & record_id

I logging in at my home using the FM Client and writing the above script. The problem is FM is finding the path to /echo_script.rb to my local hard drive where the FM client is running. I actually want it to be on the remote server side! Any idea how to make FM know where to find the path?

Since filemaker server scripts are executed via the server, I think you need to run it via a scheduled script, or possibly have VPN or other virtual drive access to that file if you are trying this remotely.

The other option would be to use a plugin (IE http://360works.com/remotescripter/ ) to launch the filemaker script remotely from a filemaker installation on the server.
