opening shared databases remotely


     How do I open a shared database remotely (FM 12)?

     No problem within my local wifi network, but I want to access the database when I'm 'on the road'.

     I tried 'open remote' for 'favorite hosts' with the network IP address for my wifi router. No luck.

     I found the article 'opening shared databases remotely using a URL', but it seems to be fm11 and earlier based (FP7 file formats).

     Just in case, I tried the script step open url("fmnet://<<ip>>/<<filename>>") but get an error (error code 5).

     What should I try? What works?
