Apologies for asking the obvious, but is the IP address on your host machine unchanged?
Good question - and no, it has not changed. And I've double checked by using the IP IWP suggests... all are being shared in once office on one network. The network guy says he's made no changes to the network.
Also tried starting a new DB with 1 record to see it had anything to do with my files, and its not coming up either.
Hmm - nope. Unable to connect.
Update: still not sure was is causing the problem, but I downloaded a FMP 10 and that appears to overcome the issue! At least I have a solution now!
So - here it is 22 March 2010, and since last year some time, IWP has stopped working properly in Filemaker Pro Advanced 9 v3 under Leopard (and Snow Leopard - if it ever did). Once IWP is started, web access returns the message "No Databases Available". Well - occasionally it does actually list the active database name, but then when you access if you might get a 'Licence Conflict" message.
No - I haven't made any mistakes, I've done this hundreds of times, and hosted on-line systems that handled hundreds of accesses.
It works fine under Windows XP still (which is infinitely galling), and apparently the solution is to upgrade to FM 10.
But wait on - there is nothing on the Filemaker or Apple web site to suggest that FM Pro Adv 9 should not operate on Leopard. I could go back to Tiger (and use FM 8.5) but who knows if this might not have stopped working too.
I assume some Leopard Upgrade has broken the software. So is this an acknowledged issue, is there a fix - workaround, and/or will it be repaired.
If not I have several comprehensive FM applications that either won't work, or I have to upgrade to FM 10/11 which I don't really want to do.
