Accessing DB from client

Your post

     I have been pulling my hair out trying to get this to work.

     I can access my hosted database without problems when connecting in my own network. 

     But when I am out of the network (at home) I cannot seem to connect at all using the network path field in 'open remote file'

     I am using FM12 adv server. Clients are FMP13adv. All Mac computers. I have a static Ip and the router has port forwarding set up to point to the server (static ip  

     I am entering this path into the network path field

     fmnet:/StaticIP/farm database. I have tried many other forms but none work...

     The message I get when connecting remotely is:

     The file “farm database
     .fmp12” could not be opened.  (Not Found)
     Attached is screen shot of forwarded ports in case i have misconfigured...
     Any help much appreciated...
