someone sneaking in?

Recommended Posts

when I open remote it shows a local host I did not put there.  I think someone is trying to sneak into my network thing but I do not know how to stop it.  It looks like this

 

fmnet:/[fd00::126a:ddff:fe51:3f8a]/

 

I had some trouble originally getting server installed.  Did I break something or is someone sneaking in please?

I doubt it is someone sneaking in, because it would have to be a machine that is exposing port 5003 to the network for you to pick it up on the "open remote" subnet.

 

It might even be your own machine.  The IP address looks like an IP6 address so just ping it and find it on your network.

In addition, be sure that the Access Log in FIleMaker Server is enabled.  Check it to see if anyone might be trying to make a connection to your server.

 

Also, since you are seeing this in your own Open Remote, what access controls are in place for your own machine?

What access controls are in place for my machine?  Can you tell me what to google to find these things out?  Also I googled 'ping' to figure how to do that but I only find windows and I still can not ping.  This is Mac 10.9.5.   When I look in preference security, it shows firewall on.   What else to look at please?  And how to ping?  This mac does not have that black screen with command prompt like windows does putting me in DOS.

 

Thank you both so much for helping me if you could just point me to ping and what access you want to know beside firewall or where to look or a link to where to find it?

It's called "Terminal" on OSX.

 

Hate to say it, but you do need to brush up on the fundamentals of understanding networking and how to troubleshoot.  The solution's deployment is easily as important as the development:

I read everything I get ahold of, Wim, studying Filemaker at minimum 5 hours a day and 8-9 hours on each weekend day.  I probably read it but forgot it.  I am sorry my questions are too stupid to answer.  I will not bother forum people any more.

That's not what I was saying.  I was merely pointing out other areas that you need to get into besides pure FM development.  You never develop a FM solution in a vacuum, it always is deployed somewhere and you have to take control over that deployment and understand what is involved.  When I said "hate to say it' it was because I understand it just adds to whatever is already on your plate.

 

There are no dumb questions.  And we're here exactly to help you through that learning curve.  Make use of it.

People here are computer people even with degrees and programmers and such as computer science masters degrees and I have just finished high school and got my first own computer few weeks ago.  This is very hard to do when everyone I know is partying and making fun because all I want to do is be a programmer but I cannot afford school.  So I read until I am blind and then it can all get confused and I begin to mix concepts.  I am sorry if I sounded upset it is just frustrating work.  If I can not make this work I will be a cleaner like rest of my family and die on my knees scrubbing floors.  I want to make money to take care of them so I over work a bit plus have full time job which runs my britches off.

 

If it was not for people here I would have given up a year ago but I read Bruce R and some others get mean to people who are new because they do not read help and I thought you did that to me.  I have read help eight times now but still do not remember it all. It appears I was incorrect in your statement and I apologize for that.  I really appreciate all the time you and other nice people like comment and LaRetta and Lee and many others give to me here.

Charity, I'm an "old guy" compared to you. However, when I started doing this in 2006 I asked so many questions whose answers were, in retrospect, obvious. I know well the feeling I was in over my head and was intimidated at times by what seemed to me at the time (and sometimes still does) the sheer level of brilliance, near genius, of many of the experienced developers. I came to understand that there are no mean people on this forum. If someone does get nasty they soon see this is not the place for them. So . . . Post and ask away! From what you describe of your circumstances (only acquiring your own computer a few weeks ago) you're doing an amazing job. And if you get really good at this, like way better than me, there is perhaps a living to be made. You won't find out if you stop!

Rick.

Do not give up.  A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  You have taken that step.  I have been working with FileMaker for well over 20 years.  I learn something new about it almost every day.  Keep asking, and if the answer is not clear, ask for clarification.  Hands-on experience guided by quality instructional material is an excellent approach to learning.

      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.

      Hello,
      We recently upgraded from FMS 14 to FMS16 and one of our databases won't open via WebDirect due to the way it's named:  the database title has an ampersand ("&") in it.  This worked just fine for FMS14, but not for FMS16.  The easiest solution seems to be to change the database title.  I'm a little hesitant to jump into this because of a large number of externally held containers.  How would one safely go about changing the database name (I'd like to change the "&" to "and") without losing the linked containers? 
      In case anyone's wondering, I didn't name the database; I inherited it.

      Hi, I have fm 14 server running on a mac mini. I have recently upgraded to FM16 running Mojave on 2 x local macs. We started with one license, where only one of us could use FM at a time (as we knew), I have since bought another copy and and reinstalled FM16 on the local mac with the new serial number but the server still seems to think we are using the same copy?? and we are getting the attached error. I have completely uninstalled FM locally but still does not work. I have asked my FM guy, as well as 2 or 3 other people but everyone seems to be stumped?? Is there any way of clearer the cache which may be holding this old information? Any help would be much appreciated.

      Dear all,
      I'm new here so forgive me if not posted in the correct location. We have the following situation for which we do not know how to continue:
      We have Filemaker server running on a windows server. The server is accessed through its local ip address (in the 10.10.10.x block). For an internal application I would like to extract information from a FileMaker database for usage in another application. Initially, I used the xmlresultset grammar. It works for when requesting the databases hosted on the server (i.e. : http//10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-dbnames returns the expected result). However, when I attempt to retrieve a list of layouts that are available I keep getting an empty body result:
      http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Returns the following contents (Note the content-length = 0):
      [Chrome section: General] Request URL: http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Request Method: GET Status Code: 200 OK Remote Address: 10.10.10.x:80 Referrer Policy: no-referrer-when-downgrade [Chrome section: Response header] Content-Length: 0 Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8 Date: Mon, 19 Nov 2018 16:01:06 GMT Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0 X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN X-Powered-By: ARR/3.0 X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block [Chrome section: Request headers] Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9,nl;q=0.8 Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXXXXXX Cache-Control: max-age=0 Connection: keep-alive Cookie: JSESSIONID=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.jwpc1 DNT: 1 Host: 10.10.10.x Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.77 Safari/537.36 I specifically made a layout that should return content as a table view of the records.
      I have verified with PHP, and it shows the same problem.
      I have read on some forum that layouts should be made available through web-publishing as well. How to do this? I cannot find it in the documentation.
      What else am I missing?
      Hoping for an answer!

      My production Filemaker Server 14 running on Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (Not Mac OS X Server) has been running fine for a year since I last installed the Thawte SSL Certificate.  After renewing the certifate this year, I've tried various different methods of importing the new certificate, which came with an intermediate certificate, but I can't seem to get the intermediate certificate installed.  I've been mostly using something like:
      sudo fmsadmin certificate import --keyfile /Users/richardfincher/Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/private.key /Users/richardfincher//Desktop/GBROOMX36-4X/ssl_certificate.crt
       
      I've also tried importing it through the web control panel.  It was necessary to remove the old private key thus.:
      sudo rm /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/serverKey.pem
      After it is (apparently) installed, I usually restart with :
      sudo fmsadmin restart adminserver
      although a few times I have rebooted the server (not a VM)
       
      Any thoughts welcome....
       
      Oh, one thing is, a year ago it might have been still on Mac OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, which was the previous OS before I upgraded it.
