Is the list of available hosted files being displayed?
It could be related to the SSL problem...
Invalid SSL certificates created when FileMaker Pro is installed on or after Sept. 22, 2008
Thanks for the reply.
The list of available hosts won't be available because that isn't possible over a VPN, so I've used Favorite Hosts. When selecting that host, the available Database does show up, and there is a network traffic exchange that I can sniff, it just never succeeds and annoyingly, never reports an error.
The SSL certificate issue is when connecting to a SERVER with SSL enabled. This is a peer to peer connection. Regardless, I tried the update and it made no difference.
Thank you for your post.
First of all, the mismatch in versions (8.0, 9.0) is not a problem. Although we are all running 9.0v3 here, I sometimes do testing with 8.0 (and 7.0) to try different things out, and I'm able to see across a network and view files.
I see that you are trying to log into the Mac from your Windows machine. Have you tried the opposite route? That is, have you tried accessing a hosted file on the Windows machine from the Mac machine? Any problems?
Are you able to bring down the firewall and test it out?
The fact that you are able to see the file but not access it concerns me.
There are several unknowns, and I'd like to start from the basics and add things one at a time. That will help me determine where the possible conflicts might occur.
I'm sorry I don't have a definitive answer.
