Summary

My databases, but I do not have complete access privileges

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

9

Operating system version

Windows

Description of the issue

Hi. I am having a problem with my Filemaker. Before our company had version 9 on one computer, but then we bought another computer and purchased filemaker pro 11 to go along with that computer. However, we want to share the database between both computers.

Steps to reproduce the problem

When I go onto either Filemaker 9 or 11 and I go to Sharing > Filemaker Network Settings it says I have no access to the file and it is not configurable, so I am unable to share them.

I looked it up and Filemaker advises to go to File > Manage > Security in order to get the privileges. However, on both versions of filemaker and on both computers this is dimmed. Therefore I am unable to share any of my databases between the computers and none of them have the access privileges in order to allow this. How can I change this?
