      Trying to connect remotely to FM database using FileMaker Go for the iphone

      Post

      I'm trying to remotely connect to a filemaker on our mac os x server. We're running FileMaker Pro Advanced 11. I'm able to connect with my laptop from both inside of our LAN and outside by going File/Open Remote. I can also connect to the database with FileMaker Go when I'm on the LAN. However, I can't do so remotely. Here's some of the specifics:

      Static ip from ISP

      port forwarding to internal static IP for server

      port 81 (for FM Instant Web Publishing) forwarded to server

      port 5003 (for FM Net) forwarded to server

      I tried entering in the static ip as such xx.xx.xx.xx:5003 and xx.xx.xx.xx:5003:filename

      but it won't work, am I doing something wrong? I'm trying to connect remotely via wifi and 3g.

      Thanks
