Summary

FM Pro 9 Wont open Files on Server

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

9

Operating system version

Windows XP SP3

Description of the issue

I have 2 computers that will not open files on a remote server. The server is located on the LAN and all of the other computers on the network can open the Filemaker remote DB no problem. There is nothing special about the configuration of the machines that will not connect.

Basically when you try to open remote you can see the server but there are no files listed.

I have reinstalled Filemaker Pro and wiped the system completely and reloaded Windows XP from scratch + all applications and it still does this. There is one other machine doing the same thing. I am out of ideas.

Please help.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Install Filemaker 9.

Open Remote, click on server and there are no files listed.

Expected result

I want files to be listed when open remote is displayed.

Actual result

There are no files listed in the open Remote dialogue.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No files listed.
