Tap the Open File Browser button. Now tap Local Network Hosts. Now that will either offer up a local wifi connection or it won't.
If it doesn, just tap on the file you see. Make sure it is open and set for sharing, of course.
If this doesn't work then let's manually add a host.
Open Filesharing in Filemaker Pro, check to see your files are shared and then copy the WiFi address at the top. 192.168...etc.
Return to Filemaker Go. Tap Open File Browser. At the bottom of the Favorite Hosts section is an Add Host... button. Tap this.
Enter the wifi address in the top field and add a host name if you like in the second. I don't since the wifi address will show up and I can select one from the list.
This may get you connected and if so ....
The 192.168... Ip address is only going to work on your local lan. It's not a public IP address. To get your public Ip address goto www.ipchicken.com. You will have to setup your router to route to the local ip address 192.168...., which is the computer hosting your databases. You need to besure port 80 is open. If Port 80 is not open then you can use port 591. If you use port 591 then you will type your public ip address with a colon and 591. For example 184.108.40.206:591. You will have to do the above steps as Jack stated above. You can google to find a site that test open ports on your computer
Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.
The information from "S Chamblee" is good for Instant Web Publishing (IWP). Port 5003 is what FileMaker Pro uses to see database files shared over the network.
I know some time has passed, so if you have since found a resolution, please post here so others who encounter the same difficult can benefit.
Yes, what resolution was found? If any?
