Title

iPad  - Host not available or file not available

Post

I have been reading and trying to share Filemaker using my Mac and Ipad.  

This is what I have done:

in MACBOOK Opened FM: FILE - SHARING - FILEMAKER NETWORK SETTINGS - turned NETWORK SHARING ON - under currently opened files selected the file I want, in this case the file name is NOTES - under NETWORK ACCESS TO FILES selected ALL USERS and nothing else is selected in that box .  CLICKED OK.

In IPAD:  Opened Filemaker to GO : CLICKED ADD - under IP address area entered MACBOOKS' IP address & clicked SAVE

IP Address appears under FAVORITE HOSTS

CLICKED FAVORITE HOST IP ADDRESS and ENTERED FILE NAME.  IPADDRESS/NOTES and enter.

The following appears: 

The file "NOTES" could not be opened.  Either the host is not availab,e or the file is not available on that host.

I made sure the file I am trying to acces is in the Filemaker application folder and also that it is opened on the Mac.

Do I have to make any settings changes or any Mac changes??
