FM Runtime Solutions


I am working on a fairly elaborate database system that will support about 100 users, some without FileMaker. I am investigating the option of using a runtime solution to avoid purchasing licenses for users that do not need FileMaker-level access.

Ideally, I would like to get most of the end-users on a runtime solution; however, I have not yet used a runtime solution and thus, have little insight to the limitations.

My main concern is connecting to the FileMaker Server that will host the database. Is it possible, by means of creating the appropriate settings/connections panels and corresponding scripts, to create a runtime solution that will connect to a server as an external datasource?
