Help with sharing from a server


     My small organization (3 people) has recently started using FileMaker Pro. We store our active database file (along with virtually all our other files and documents) on a Mac mini server, which we log into remotely from our own computers. So far, we haven't been able to figure out how to have multiple users open the file at the same time. I've turned sharing on, but when a second user tries to open it, they get an error message.

     From what I've read, the suggested method for sharing is to have the file open on the machine where it is stored, but while each of our own computers has Filemaker software installed, the server does not.

     Any suggestions?
