FileMaker Server and FileMaker Server Advanced port numbers
What are the port numbers used by FileMaker Server and FileMaker Server Advanced?
Ports used by FileMaker Server 13
Thanks David Anders, but your reply relates to FM Server. We are running FM Pro Advanced, NOT server, so not relevant unless the server software is not imposing an extra layer of security by working through a specified port numebr that would be different to that used on the router in a LAN.
BUMP - Amazed nobody has experienced this problem before. What about all the FM certified personnel who view these threads ???
This is now causing us real problem. We woul dhave to reconfigure the machines because of the role they play in the LAN, a few hours work, but should be necessary really.
Are you using filemaker sharing? You have to open the database on one of the machine. It is recommend to use the same machine to host the database. From the second computer open filemaker then use open remote to open the database. Any other method of sharing is not supported and will corrupt the database.

This is purely a minor quibble: Make that "may" corrupt the database. Using other methods roll the dice on the safety of your file each time a person uses a non-recommended method of opening a hosted file. Some people have used non-recommended methods for years without trouble, but they were lucky and this is definitely not a risk anyone should run with their data.
