          Gary Veroba:

          Thank you for your post.

          When in FileMaker Server Admin Console, is there anything in the logs that provide any information just prior to the communication being lost?

          Are all processes up and running on the server?

          Does the Admin Console show the Database Server up and running?  Web Publishing?

          Do you have a screen saver on the Server?  If so, be sure to disable it.

          Any other information you can provide may be helpful.
