FMPro v9 - Can't see remote available files - Active Directory

Post

I cannot see available files on remote hosts. I CAN see the remote hosts, but when I select a host, the list of available files remains blank.

I have FMPro v9.03 on Windows XP Pro. I am aware of the SSL problem post 2008. I installed FMPro with the date set to 2007.

The problem is in Active Directory. My WinXP PC is in AD. As a test, I installed FMPro to a Win XP PC NOT in AD. On that PC, I can see remote hosts and available files.

  • I tried installing and running FMPro as a local administrator, instead of my AD account - no difference.
  • I turned off the firewall - no diff
  • I turned off (and on) simple file sharing - no diff

I'm out of ideas. Has anyone dealt with this?

PS My problem is related to the "can't share files because another user is already sharing..." error. That is, I cannot share FMPro files from my Win XP PC in AD: I get that error. I CAN share from a PC not in AD.
