      trouble sharing files

      Post

      I just upgraded to FM pro 11 and can't share files between computers. I have followed all the directions but nothing seems to work. Nothing shows up in open remote file even though my other computer is set to have access to all users (there's only two computers here). Does anyone know how to fix this?

          You set the database to multiuser.

          You open the database on a WIN? MAC? computer on a WIRED? WIRELESS? network.

          The database is opened.

          You open Filemaker Pro? Advanced? version 7? 8? 9? 10? 11?   updated to current update?

          You know the IP Address of both computers  <192.168.0.2  and  192.168.0.3>???

          If you select Open Remote under File Menu

          The default selection is Local Hosts   where  fmnet://IPAddress/Filename is the argument

          Choose instead Favorites Hosts   where the entry would be  192.168.0.2
