Open Remoltey - Switch from Filemaker 11 to 12




     I have a database that I share with around 10 users across my company. Recently, a few of the users got an upgrade from FMP 11 to 12. I am the host of the database and have FMP 11. The group that has switched has been unable to open my database. They have followed the following steps:

     1. Go to file "Open Remote"

     2. Type in EXACT "fmnet: "path (i.e. my IP address and name of database)

     3. Click "open"

     Then an error message pops up that says "cannot locate host or host is not setup to be located" something like that...

     Please let me know if this is an issue with FMP 12 or if there is a setting that needs to be adjusted that I am forgetting. I have other users that are still able to login to my database without a problem. Please advise.
