Are you getting an error dialog that tells you this or are you not seeing the file listed in the Open Remote dialog?
If the latter, can you see the name of the server?
Is the host using 8.5 or 11? (I think you are using 11 for the host).
What version is the one computer that can't connect using?
There is a known issue with corrupt or missing .pem files that can keep a given client computer from seeing the hosted file. In those cases, you can see the server name in the Open Remote Dialog, but not the hosted file.
If that looks like a possibility here, see these links:
This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.

Thanks for your reply. Just to clarify, I am not using FM Server as a host, it is FMP Advanced 11.0v3. Here are some answers to your questions:
-Yes I can see the server but not the files. If I type in the file name, I get an error message saying that either the host is not available or the file is not located on the host.
-The host is using v11 and the client is using FMP 8.5. I have also tried FMPA 8.5 with the same failure.
-I verified that the server.pem file is located where the link describes and it is 8KB. I don't know how else to verify that it is a valid file. I don't have another installation (I have only a 1 seat license).
You said you had "Only one computer on my LAN has v11, while the others have v8.5". If so, you can try copying this .pem file from one of the other 8.5 clients where this is working and see if that corrects the problem.
No, that didn't work either. The post was a little vague about where the file needs to go. Should it be moved to a higher level folder or stay in the \Contents\MacOS folder?
"Replace it with a copy from another install of 8.5." Thus, it stays in the same folder as before, but you are copying a new file over from the other computer.
Yes, that is what I did. I appreciate your suggestions.
I just turned off the local firewall on my host computer and lo and behold, the file appears on the client!
So maybe this is not the right forum for this question, but how can I create a port for FMP on my firewall so that I don't have to keep it turned off?
