      New to Networking / new to FM pro 10 Adv.

      Post

      I just completed my solution and it's working. I want to run this over a server and installed FM 10 Pro advanced on my work station but placed the finished solution files on the network drive on the server.

      Question:

      Where can I find step by step assistance with  making the solution sharable across the network? and do I need to install FMPRO on the server too. 

       

      Thanks

          Seems to me that you are trying to run a peer to peer network. You will need one copy of Pro or Pro Advanced to open the files and act as the host. Then everyone else would use their own copy of FileMAker Pro / Adv  and use 'Open Remote' to connect with the host PC.

           

          If you have the money or the need you can get FileMaker Server which will run as a dedicated server on your server box.
