How to make a file multi user

Post

Hello. At the shop we have5 computers that connect into the main computer. When I try to open a filemaker pro file it gives me the error File is currently in use and could not be opened. The file is single-user, or the host could not be found on the network.

 

Im able to ip into the computer fine. I dont think it is a network issue. But I should be able to open this shared file and modify things.

 

The file that I want to be shared also has the "Multi-User" field checked off. 3 computers on my network can open the file and edit just fine. I just have 2 computers that gets that single-user error.

 

We're using FileMaker Pro 4.0
