    Enabling SSL causes older clients to be unable to connect

      Summary

      Enabling SSL causes older clients to be unable to connect

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      Server 2012

      Description of the issue

      As of enabling SSL all our clients were suddenly unable to access the server.  Turns out client versions before 14 (12 and 13) can only use 14 server if you're not using SSL.  If you enable SSL, they can no longer connect, you must have FMP14.  This is NOT supposed to be the case, and it caused us to suffer an organization wide failure, not to mention WebDirect still doesn't think the certificate is there.  Overall, this is a disastrous release.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Install 14 server, connect with v12 client.  Enable SSL on server, try to connect with client again.

      Expected result

      Connect to server and list databases

      Actual result

      Get told you don't have access to any databases

      Workaround

      Turn off SSL, or upgrade all clients to v14
