ODBC connection requires network

ODBC connection requires network


I have an ODBC connection setup to a FileMaker database. The database resides on the same computer so I setup the ODBC connection as localhost. The problem is that I can only connect successfully when the computer is connected to a network when I make the connection. If I don't have a network connection I get an "802 unable to open file error". If I turn on the network, open filemaker and make the odbc connection it works fine. If I leave filemaker up and then disconnect the network it continues to work.

I need this to work in a disconnected state, is there something I'm missing ?

Any help would be appreciated.
