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.

      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.

      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.
