Filemaker has its own networking built in. It's not recommend to put the database on a shared drive, because if two users open the database at the same time the file could get corrupt. Two users will not require Filemaker server. One user will open the databases then the other user will use open remote to open the databases. Filemaker can share up to 9 users. http://www.filemaker.com/products/compare/
oh, I didn't know that. That is awesome!
I will check that out. Thank you very much for the info.
Ideally, the file should first be opened with a copy of FileMaker Pro on the machine where the file is stored. While it is possible for either user, if the first to open it, to host the file and the other can use Open Remote to access it, there is also an increased risk of damage to the file if the file is not "local" to the copy of FileMaker being used to host it.
