Thank you for your post.
A 3G connection does not automatically authorize access to an external server. You will either need VPN access or port forwarding configured on the router for external access. For more information, see Knowledge Base Article #7768:
Port forwarding is on! That's how Safari can see it via 3G.
That is not the problem.
If Safari can get through, then FileMaker Go should.
(I have been doing this for 25 years)
FileMaker Go uses the FileMaker Network sharing protocol on port 5003 to remotely access a database. It is just like using Open Remote in FileMaker Pro, and the same extended permission (fmapp) must be set in the file.
Please be sure to forward port 5003 on your router and firewall. When you enter the host IP address in FileMaker Go, you may omit this port number.
That worked! But you need to specify the IP with the port:
Would be nice if this was documented, and prominently, in the help file. Accessing your files over 3G is going to be a very common use of the app.
the best wat i did is making on dyndns a free acount and run dyndns on my mac
in the router i set postwarding Public start port:5003 and Public end port:5003 and xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx in local ip adress
what i did to in webshare on my mac on pc i dont now
when i open this link in filemaker go he recongnize the test template and sync together
you can do test on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, yes, I have a dyndns.org account. That's how I was accessing it. Didn't mention that as I tried it both ways. And yes, they are great!
