      Finding FMP File on Server

      Post

      I am reading about and trying to understand how to operate my FMP from my laptop while it is hosted on my remote server.  I cannot seem to successfully connect.

       

      1.  Should I actually be able use File/Open Remote to open and then actual work with the file?  Or must I download it first?

       

      2.  I uploaded the life to the server and I am using fmnet:/(HostIP)/myfilename  I put this first in the primary server folder and then in the publichtml folder and also the puble ftp folder and cannot find it in any.  Whis is the correct place the fmp file should be stored?

       

      Please Help

          You should have FileMaker Pro/Server installed on the server and have the file opened.

           

          If you are trying to access the file via FileMaker network, you can use the link you mentioned, i.e. fmnet:/(HostIP)/myfilename to open it. Be sure to go to File->Sharing->FileMaker Network and make sure that you have specified at least one user to be able to access the file via FileMaker network.
