Legacy issue


Hi all, new here, please be gentle with me!

I have three ageing PPC macs networked together running an old FM6 database which is critical to my business.

Just upgraded two of them machines from Tiger OSX to Leopard OSX.

Since upgrading FM6 runs fine on the main machine which also serves the other two.

I can run FM6 on the other machines but I cannot successfully connect to my database on the main (server) machine since upgrading from either of the other machines (one on Tiger, one on Leopard).

I realise that this is an ancient version of FM, but unfortunately it is the latest version that the filemaker developer got up to.

I need to be able to run this still for at least another 6 months or so.

Does anyone out there have any idea what the connectivity issues are and if they can be solved?

A bit more info, the machines are still networked fine and FM6 does start over the network and lets me log in, but then gets stuck before it can open many files.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice (apart of course from the obvious get new machines etc!)
