Please, how to use external files in a runtime solution?


Hi. I'm new with filemaker. I just created a database with several tables. This is intended for several users in different locations, so I hire a filemaker hosting service to test it online. Instant web publishing works very slow and with major limitations. But it works fine via fmnet, using my copy of filemaker where i created a second file with no tables and with a link to the hosted one instead as external datasource.


A friend of mine using FMAdvanced created a runtime solution for me to test but it doesn't work (it doesn't recognize the external reference) and we have no idea about how to solve it.


The runtime solutions would be perfect for us. Are the runtime solutions unable to use external datasources at all or simply not in internet? It is posible in a local network or in a private virtual network?


is there any way to get what i need without having to purchase filemaker licenses for all of my users?


your help will be very apreciated.
