Update to 3 month old post: yet no answers.
Both machines will not see the database with in Firefox 6 or IE 9 with in Windows7.
But they will show in Safari (for Windows of course).
They show up just fine for Firefox 6 for Macintosh.
Are you referring to a different post than the first one above? It's dated July 13 and that' only half that old. That's still way to long to wait for a response but it isnt' three months either. I'll see if I can't get someone to take a closer lookat this who actually cashes paychecks from FileMaker Inc....
Sorry, my mistake. Post not quite as old as I thought. Thank you for responding and look forward to any help you or they can provide.
Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.
I don't have an immediate answer why it works with one browser but not another.
Is this only occurring with one specific database file? Have you tried creating a brand new database file, one field, turned on Instant Web Publishing and set access for all users?
Are you using a dynamic IP Address or static IP Address? Is it a local IP Address? Go to www.whatismyip.com to get the IP Address.
Is it possible someone else is using the same IP Address on the network?
On the same machine where the file is hosted, launch a browser and access the file. This will remove the network from the equation.
Any other information you can provide may be helpful in narrowing down possible causes.
Yes, we only have one database running and shared out. I will try to create a new database and see it it occurs as well.
We use Static IP Addressing and the database is local in the office here on an XP machine.
The 2 laptops this occurs on are static IP as well, wireless connections are actually disabled because they are being used as local workstations and never become mobile. One uses 192.168.XX.155, one uses 192.168.XX.202, no other machines use those IP addresses locally.
I have access to the database on the machine it is being hosted just fine. All looks normal in FireFox there.
I did create a new Database and shared it out in the same way as the other.
I get the exact same result, and cannot see either database within FireFox 6 on these 2 Windows7 laptops.
I cannot see either database within IE 9 on these machines.
I can see them fine in Safari for windows on these machines.
Latest Firefox update has resolved this issue. Now using FireFox 7.0.1 and all is well again.
