      Which Computer Am I Running On

      Post

           How can a script determine which computer on a network it is currently running on?

           I have an application running on a PC Network. When the script is running on one particular PC it needs to do a couple of extra tasks - how can the scripy deteremine which PC it is currently running on?

               If you are using FileMaker 12 or newer, Get ( PersistentID ) will return a value unique to the specific hardware running the machine.

               Or you can go to that machine and Use Preferences to assign a unique user name to that specific client copy of FileMaker Pro. (This assumes that only one computer user account is used to open the file on that machine.) Then Get ( UserName ) can be used to identify the machine.
