Title

FMP on LAN

Post

     Most of what I read recommends running FMP either peer-to-peer or on a server with FMS.  We use a fairly large LAN and I'd like to store the database on one of the network drives (a virtual server).  Is it possible to do this without FMS?  When I tried it with two test machines I got an error saying the file could not be opened by the second user even though it was shared by the first user.  I do not want to store the database on a local machine and I don't want to set up a new machine as a server when I already have massive server space through our LAN.  Thanks for the advise.
