IWP without having FMPA open


Hi everybody,

I'm new to this forum!


I'm writing because FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced is driving me crazy! I've been using it for a while on a Mac Mini running OS X Server 10.5.8 and I can't seem to find a solution to my problem on my own...


I need the server to provide access to my FileMaker database via IWP all the time, it needs to be a reliable service.

Currently, the employees access the db remotely with FMPA and external customers need to fill out some forms on the web.

I've got 2 issues:

1. There needs to be an admin logged into the server to allow FileMaker to open and provide the IWP service

2. Sometimes FileMaker brings the CPU usage to 100% and suddenly closes the database, not allowing customers AND employees to access the file anymore! I have no idea why this happens but it does at least once a week!

(Could it be perhaps because of Time Machine backups? just guessing...)


Anyway, can you help me for BOTH issues? It's important for me to solve them asap!

Otherwise, is it possible to solve them with FileMaker 11? If so, with which version?


Thank you in advance for your kind support


Best regards,
