License Conflict with myself


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.0v3

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6.7

Description of the issue

My computer gets the license conflict message when I try to access the database hosted by another computer if I am within the same network. I have no problem if I access from home or from the network of another organization down the hall. I used to have this problem occasionally when I was on the network wirelessly, but not when I had the ethernet cable plugged in. We recently added a new iMac to the network and moved the databases there. This increased the problem and now I can only get onto the databases from an outside network. I have no problem opening databases that are on my computer. The problem is just with remote databases.
