New here. Re: Sharing wrong ip address...i think!


 Hi there, I am new here. I am using File Maker Pro Advanced with File Maker Go. At least that is the plan!

I am having trouble connecting my File Maker Go to my host.

On the host computer, when I share the database, my host computer automatically shows my ip address..and it is the private one. I think its wrong..dont I need that ip address to be the publice one? Also, if so, is there a way to change it?

Im supposed to tell my iPads to look for the public ip address correct?

Note: I already had my IT guy set up port forwarding today as instructed by Filemaker support. Also, my team is 5 hours away from me, so we are not in the same office. We will connect over internet but not webpublishing.

Thank you!
