I have a client running FMP 9 on windows 7 on a local network. All machines could see the server with the server appearing in local host. Now for some reason the server can not be seen with local host or favourite host....but on one machines you can open the hosted file using "open recent" but try the same on one of the other machines and it says the file could not be found. Windows firewall is off on the client machines with no other security software managing the firewall. I have replaced the server.pem file and this to yielded no result.

I can see the hosted file from out side their local network across the internet but I am using FMPA 11 on a vista machine. Is this issue related to FMP 9 not being support on Windows 7 and is there a quick fix to get this working again?

when you specify the server from that FM9 machine, how are you doing that? By IP address? By DNS name?

Can you ping the server from that FM9 machine. If you have IIS turned on on the server, can you reach the web server from the windows 7 box?

Client machines can ping the server and IIS is active on the server as clients access the server through terminal services web connection. There is a fully qualified domain name.

I can see the hosted files from across the internet using both the external IP and the domain name but the client machines can't. The IT guy has said that the client machines are separated from the server by a switch.

I also have an jpg of the network setup which may be of some use but i am not sure how to get this image to you.

I have a client running FMP 9 on windows 7 ....

Is FileMaker Pro 9 updated to the most current version? (9.0.3) I seem to recall a similar issue on Windows with FM 9.0.1.
