Title

Special windows settings needed for IWP access?

Post

I've got a Filemaker Pro database shared using IWP, and as far as I can tell the settings under accounts, privileges, extended privileges etc. are all Ok (I walked through them with a customer support person). But I can only access the database as follows:

 

1) From the local machine using the address http://localhost

 

I can log in as a user or a guest using either Firefox or Internet Explorer and things seem fine.

 

2) From the local machine using the ip address (http://ip-address)

 

Only Firefox (version 3.5) works here; Explorer (version 7) gets to the login page, but when I try to log in as a guest or a user with an account, I get the following error message: "The account and password you entered cannot be used to access this file. Please try again.".

 

3) From an external machine, using the ip address

 

Both Firefox and Internet Explorer report the same error message as above. You can get to the database homepage, and click on the database filename to get to the login page, but then the message "The account and password you entered cannot be used to access this file. Please try again." is reported.

 

I'm at my wits end here.. all help greatly appreciated! Thanks,
