DNS servers may be a problem.
You probably have a default DNS server(s) to be assigned by DSHS
Try using 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 [level 7]
opendns also has DNS servers you can use, as does Google
I have tried 184.108.40.206 & google & opendns, by changing both my verizon router and when that didn't fix it, I also changed my computers DNS addresses that is hosting fm IWP.
Would going back to comcast make any sense?
As it stands now, I won't be able to use IWP as it is so aggravating with the timeouts.
Any other thoughts?
ok, so noone seems to know or is even having this issue from this forum & also from fmforums.com
so I tried to test my online registration a moment ago, & it would not connect to the database at all. (came back with a timeout page)
si I changed from open dns on my router & my hosting pc back to obtain DNS servers automatically, but it still timed out,
so then I exited & closed out of filemaker (its been on for several days now), then restarted filemaker (did not reboot the pc) and it worked perfectly, as quick as can be.
I am using microsoft security essentails & firewall on that pc, though I don't know what diff that would make.
I wonder if the server version would have these freeze ups?
I wonder if all IWP seesions on a pc have this problem?
