    Accessing dbs from another (IWP) machine



      Accessing dbs from another (IWP) machine

      Your post

      I have moved over to trying FMS Adv 11 (from learning how to use FMPA) and am struggling a bit.

      To trial FMSA 11 I have installed it om my spare laptop (hi spec , Win7) and I think I have followed the instructions okay. IWP is activated and I have uploaded a test db to the server.

      when testing, I can access the IWP default home page and can see and open the db via my laptop browser (host machine), - but when I try to access it from another PC browser (as I did with FMPA IWP) it is not found. I have the correct IP addresses for the laptop and have also tried using the :port number after the IP address.

      I thought that it may be fairly straightforward to use FMS with IWP to allow more than 5 persons to access the db, but maybe I have bitten off more than I can chew !

      All works well on all networks with just FMPA / IWP

      Any help will be appriciated (as it was when helped with FMPA)



      UPDATE: Think I managed to sort it - I turned off windows firewall (thought that the firewall on my router would be good enough) and everything locally seems to work.

      I wonder if someone would mind testing it for me from outside my network.
