At my office I have talked my accounting manager into two copies of FileMaker Pro 13. As an experienced user I have actively been using it. My co-worker is slow to do so. The Accounting Manager see there are scenarios for her to use it.
I have one file that I use, that I have tried to get my co-worker to use. I have not done any peer to peer networking since ver11. I have the file on my C:Drive. I work with it open all day. I have it set to be shared. When I go to his machine, I see a cryptic name in the window in the upper left starting with WIN. It has my computer's IP address. BUT I can now see the two files I have tagged for him to use.
Yes, I am using OPEN REMOTE. Both machines are using Windows 7 Professional and FileMaker Pro 13 Standard Version. Any thoughts on this. When we hire a new HR/Payroll person the accounting manager has plans for the person to set up a lot of things in FileMaker Pro. She will want to access those from her desk.
The HR/Payroll files will be hosted on the Payroll machine. None of the individual machines are set to be shared. Whether HR/Payroll or mine they are being hosted through the network from a non-shared machine. I think that is what Filemaker wants.
