      Networking - no available files

      Post

           Hi all,

           A database is hosted on my MacBook Pro running FileMaker Pro Advanced 12 v3

           The database is open under a user with Extended Privileges access; File Network Sharing is On; The specific user set for Network Sharing have fmapp access;

           The LAN appears to be working; File Sharing is on; The File Sharing firewall is allowing incoming connections for FileMakerPro Advanced.

           A iMac on the LAN runs FileMaker Pro 12 v3 (not Advanced but I don't think it should make a difference).

           On 'Open Remote' the MacBook Pro is seen as a Local Host but has no available files. The MacBook Pro's IP address in the Local Host dialog matches the IP address given under Mac OS File Sharing.

           I am at a loss as to what to try next, any help would be greatly appreciated.

           Many Thanks, D
