      Remote Database Basics, Please

      Post

      I would like to have 2 hosted FileMaker databases hosted on a remote FileMaker Server (code.fp7, data.fp7).  This will be my first try at remote hosting.  I would like to have the runtime application be able to automatically connect to these databases when it opens.  I've been reading through the posts.  It looks like I might be able to start the local runtime app with a small local.fp7 file which will open the remote databases then close itself.  Will that work.  Can I have a config table with the URL/path of the remote fp7 file(s) so that I can configure the system at installation with the proper path (which will vary by customer)? Can a runtime even open an .fp7 file or does it have to be the .USR file that was bound to it at creation?

      Any help and tips would be appreciated.

      Thanks
