You might check the .pem files on your computer. Usually, you can see the server though I see a brief mention that sometimes you can't even see the server.
For More Information see: FMP installer does not install server.pem file
This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List thread here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.
It can also be downloaded as a database file from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jt09b82i0xijbu3/FMP%20Bugs.zip
The .pem file has moved from FileMaker 11 to FileMaker 12. It now gets created in
C:\Users\André Just Vedgren\AppData\Local\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro Advanced\12.0
I tried moving the server.pem file from my old FileMaker 11 installation to that location. But to no avail - it was overwritten with a newer version. I then tried copying my old version to
C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced\Extensions\OpenSSL
Still no success.
To confirm that the issue somehow had to do with enctryption and certificates, I tried disabling the secure connections on server. Result: I could see the hosted files. So you are right about the certificate issues.
So next question: What to do? Another reinstall with a fresh version of the install package? Move a certificate from my (working) Mac edition to (where?) on the Windows edition?
I Googled and found much confusion. This link was clear and includes a server.pem download
AT THE END:
I called Filemaker support and they provided a new "Server.pem" file which
resolved the problem. Thanks for all the good suggestions.
Are you saying you cannot see the hosted 12 files from the XP client? If so, the fact that you have both 11 and 12 clients installed on the XP box is not the problem.
More likely is either that Bonjour is not installed or that the FMS ports (5003, etc.) are not open on the '08 server.
Also, copying the .pem files from one OS to another may not solve a corrupted file, but I'd look first at the ports or Bonjour.
If you can see the hosted files by entering the server's address in Favorite Hosts, then Bonjour is a better bet.
Thanks for the information. I checked the Server and although FM Server was configured to allow traffic through the firewall, the .exe file was routed to the old FMSA 11 (x86) folder. As soon as I changed the directory, the files were visible and available.
