          Thank you for the post.

           

          On one iPad 3rd Generation with iOS 8.3, I encountered an issue where FileMaker Go 13 could connect to a hosted solution, but FileMaker Go 14.0.1 could not connect (even when manually entering the sharing I.P. address). All other devices on the network were able to connect.

           

          Since all other devices were able to connection, the initial installation appears to have be corrupted and the solution was to uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Go 14.0.1.

           

          Let me know if reinstalling FileMaker Go 14.0.1 resolves the issue.

            I've found the reason last night.

            It's a change of design with FMGo14: Tapping on the Hosts-Icon (bottom/right) isn't enough anymore. You also have to tap on "Hosts" (top/left) in order to reach local hosts. Didn't spot that with other devices since I had a AppMaker installed.

            Though this issue is cleared √

            Though this change-of-design requiring an additional tap to reach the Hosts list.

              Our Documentation department updated the knowledge base article Connecting to a file via FileMaker Go to include the instructions for this new way of connecting in FileMaker Go 14.
