      Need a server for FM

      Post

           Hi,

           I want to know if there should be a server for FileMaker.

               A server computer or server software? (There is a product named FileMaker Server which is one, not the only option for hosting a FileMaker database over a network.)

               Whether you need a server or not depends on one you plan to do with FileMaker.

                   Maybe. Maybe not.

                   FileMaker Pro can host up to 9 simultaneous FileMaker Pro clients and up to 5 simultaneous Web browser clients if you set up your database to publish to the web with Instant web publishing.

                   FileMaker Server and FileMaker Server Advanced support many more clients at one time and also offer additional features to better support managing a hosted database. The Features and hardware requirements are available from FileMaker's Product Information web pages.
