Can't access FileMaker server 13 with Filemaker 11 Pro Remotely

Your post

I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I'm a little confused on the wording here.

From the manual page

"FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced 12.0 and later databases only work with other FileMaker 12.0 and later software. Files from previous versions must be converted to the .fmp12 format to be shared with version 12.0 and later. In addition, FileMaker Server 12 and later will only host files converted to the .fmp12 format."

When I try to view databases that are hosted on filemaker 13 from a computer using filemaker pro 11, I can't see the databases. However, I'm hosting them just fine from web view. I want to be clear that this is probably the issue. You can't open a remote database if the the server is ahead of filemaker 12 and the client is using filemaker 11?
