Using FileMaker Pro 7 through VPN connection ?


Dear forum members


Can anyone advise how to access FileMaker Pro 7 through VPN. We have two remote users who need to be able to work with FileMaker Pro and access databases same as LAN users.

What was done:

We have installed FileMaker Pro on remote workstations and established connection to the company server via VPN. However, we are receiving the following error (please see image file) when open “OPEN DATABASE.fp7” file. 

What are we doing wrong?

We are using FileMaker Pro 7.0v3.; Windows XP SP3,


I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you in advance!
