    FM 8.5 no longer sharing since Mavericks upgrade

      Summary

      FM 8.5 no longer sharing since Mavericks upgrade

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      8.5

      Operating system version

      OS 10.9

      Description of the issue

      Since upgrading to Mavericks, we can no longer share files. Files were opened on the host computer & accessed through "open remote". Sharing enabled thru TCP. No changes made to FM app before the upgrade. Even though NO files are open, computers have all been rebooted, some computers (6 FM licenses) are using Mt. Lion, two computers using Mavericks, the same message appears "Filemaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using Filemaker Pro on this computer."
      Suspect a TCP issue as one other app using TCP had a conflict with Mavericks (Timbuktu Pro), but developers for Timbuktu issued an update. I HOPE Filemaker will address this issue as we can't afford to upgrade our Filemaker. 8.5 worked fine until 10.9.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Open FM app
      2. Open a FM file, any file -- above message appears. File will open, but only one user can access the file at any time.

      Expected result

      Our expected result would be to share files as we did with 10.8.

      Actual result

      Filemaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using Filemaker Pro on this computer

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Filemaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using Filemaker Pro on this computer

      Configuration information

      10.9 OS.

      Workaround

      None
