     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.
