Dear sirs/madam,

I have 360SuperContainer deployed on my FileMaker Server Advanced. On my router, I have set up port forwarding and Dynamic DNS services to enable a log-in from outside my office. This is where the complication comes in. If i need to use 360SuperContainer from within my local network in my office, the path for the SuperContainer server looks like this

http://localhost:8020/SuperContainer/Files or

However, if I need to use SuperContainer from outside my office network, I use the DynDNS address which looks something like:


This poses a problem when I have staff in the office uploading documents and salesmen outside office also needing to upload document.

How can I set it up so that, both can upload documents simulteneously?

Thanks in advanced!

Kind Regards,

Jeremy Leong

You can use get(hostipaddress) to determine if your users are connecting from inside our outside your network, and set the IP accordingly. I recommend creating a custom function for your IP address instead of typing it into each web viewer so that you can calculate and change it in one place.
