Hi all,

 

i've been developing and maintaining a FM11 solution for my organization for the past few years, and it's time to move to FM13 to take advantage of some of the new features for our increasingly mobile workforce. currently the server is in the main office and we use an SSL VPN to get on the local network and log in.

 

obviously this makes it vulnerable to outages from our internet service providers, and generally sucks time and money away from more important things. i'm exploring moving to a colocation on a new server at a data center or high-performance virtualization.

 

i've been browsing the forums and haven't found much in terms of experiences and best practices for solutions like these.  we're only dealing with tens of thousands of records at a time, so the network overhead really isn't that huge.

 

I inquired with WorldCloud but that experience was (still is? can't seem to get through to anyone to make sure my "service" is cancelled. that situation is pending.) pretty abysmal. 

 

my main question is how are people securing connectivity? i would rather not have it wide open. are you using a service provider's VPN or setting one up on the machine?

 

thanks for any insight!

      I currently administer a Filemaker 16 Server and only use Oracle Java for the admin console (web publishing is turned off). We want to get rid of Java rather than start paying for it. Rather than upgrade to FMS18, is it possible to use OpenJDK instead of Java for the FMS16 admin console? If so, is there anyone that can provide some guidance on how to do that?

      After upgrading to FM Server 16, I am seeing that the automatic daily script executed from the server side is no longer doing so without error. The script sends email reminders to workshop presenters scheduled within 4 days. The error code, which I record in a log, is 119. However, that code isn't listed among the error codes listed in the online help:
      https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/help/16/fmp/en/#page/FMP_Help%2Ferror-codes.html%23
      Knowing the meaning of the error may provide useful information that will help me reconfigure the email account settings for the command Send Via SMTP Server.
      Thanks.

      Mr. Ignoramus
      We have a solution in Canada where we moved the db from a hosting company to a LAN ( customers building ) They are using a Mac OS machine running FileMaker 16 server.
      We access the FM 16 server via apple's remote access, having trouble locating where we would put the index.html and php files for our web form that we used when we were hosting on an outside hosting company.  The hosting company put the html/php file in the folder that designated our account number. 
      My question is this ... where would we put the two web files; index.html (form) and the .php (create record in FM) file on the FM 16 server.  I can not seem to locate the instruction via the documentation FM is providing.  Have done several internet search ...
      I am gathering information to pass to the individual helping us with the FM server at location.
      Anybody able to provide a link or guidance I would be grateful.
      Thank you.
