Sharing a file then viewing it on another computer?
Hi I'm using FileMaker Pro 11
I have set up a database on 1 Mac computer in the office. All I want to learn how to do is share that file database on another computer also. I have tried everything and followed instructions on the forums. I've clicked on File> Sharing > FileMaker Network> Network Sharing ON. (no problem here)
So when I go to computer number 2 how do I access the database and see the file that i have shared? The filemaker pro is only installed on computer 1. Please could someone give step by step instructions on how another computer without filemaker pro installed in it can access the files. Thank you
You will need to install a different copy (Different license key) of FileMaker on computer 2.
Either that or you set up Instant Web Publishing on Computer 1 and use a web browser to access the database from Computer 2.
