      xDBC client must be on the same computer as FileMaker Pro

      Post

           I have Filemaker Pro 11 Advanced installed on computer A.

           I am trying to connect via OBDC on compuer B. When I make the System DSN, I get this error:

           Attempting to connect to database CPMI on host 100.1.1.105...
           


                [FileMaker][FileMaker] xDBC client must be on the same computer as
                 FileMaker Pro


                Test failed.

           Yet, the guide here
           http://www.filemaker.com/support/product/docs/fmp/fm11_odbc_jdbc_guide_en.pdf
           nonchalantly says if its not local, then to put the i.p address?

           How can I connect to filemaker via obdc connection from a remote computer?

            

           thanks.
