fmp 11 sharing files


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OSX 10.6.8 64-bit Intel

Description of the issue

Files are not listed when viewing from another computer.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a new database and add a few sample fields.
File->Sharing->Filemaker Network, enable sharing and select All Users.
From other computer, browse local network.  Select filemaker machine (now appearing).

Expected result

The list should include the file that I enabled sharing on.

Actual result

The list is empty.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

There is no error message, it just says that there are no files on this server.

Configuration information

I have tried on different networks and scanned to make sure port 5003 is open. I have tried updating FMP, re-installing FMP, giving write access to the fmsadmin group, giving write access to all, enabling all sharing permission on the file, connecting from a different machine that is known to work, typing in the exact IP of the server, tried this with :5003, tried this with the filename.
Nothing seems to work
