      Summary

      FMP, FMPA, FMPS 13, Mavericks and Macmini

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      10.9.1

      Description of the issue

      Have had this issue present itself on three different mac mini's.

      The computer will lose connection to host, randomly. If it is the client running FMP13, it randomly loses connection to host. If it is the FMPS13 running on a macmini, it will randomly drop all connections and go 'deaf' on the network for 10 seconds up to a minute. It comes back 'online' without us doing anything.

      These are all mac minis purchased in the last 6 months. We have lots of other mac minis that run continously without dropping connection.

      Is anyone else seeing behavior like this?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Client : connect to database(s), work in database and computer will lose connection to host randomly 2 or more times a day

      Server: run server 13 on a macmini, and it will randomly go 'deaf' on the network, dropping all client connections

      Expected result

      computer should remain connected to database until you manually quit/disconnect

      Actual result

      lose connection to host

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      lost connection to host

      Configuration information

      Recent mac mini purchase

      Workaround

      for server, we loaded windows on the mini and it has been running without a problem
