External Authentication exactly...... can this be done via another fmp file?

No.

External Authentication requires FM Server and works with Active Directory (Win) or Open Directory (Mac). The advantage of using AD or OD is that the user groups and accounts can also be used to manage other IT resources such as computer log-ins, e-mail accounts and file share access.

EA can also be used in a simpler setup without AD or OD by creating the user accounts and groups in the OS of the host computer running FM Server.
