    Server test does not show certified connection



      Server test does not show certified connection


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9.5

      Description of the issue

      The server test page uses the IP address to call up the FMserver_sample database. With a certificate installed this will produce a WebDirect page that does not have a valid certificate as the name and address need to match. This makes for a very poor test.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Call up the test page from a server control panel where a certificate has been installed.

      Expected result

      Secure WebDirect page

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      [Red cross] This certificate is not valid (host name mismatch)


      edit the URL manually once the page has loaded

          Thank you for the post.


          This is the expected behavior as currently designed. FileMaker Server’s test pages use the I.P. address instead of the fully qualified domain name.


          If you would like to see a change in this behavior, I would encourage you to enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:




          These web form suggestions are monitored and read by our Development and Product Management departments and then discussed and considered for a future release. Although I could copy your post and paste it into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
