Can't launch Admin Console from desktop
I'm using FileMaker Server 12 on a Windows Server 2008 machine.
I can access the admin console from the server but I would like to be able to access it my office as well so that I don't have to go down to the server room for every little thing.
I go to http:// IP address:16000 and get the start page but when I click on "Start Admin Console" I get the error message "Unable to launch the application"
I tried updating JAVA to the latest version on my computer but no joy. I didn't try updating JAVA on the server since I can access the admin console from that machine (also because sometimes JAVA updates makes things go screwy). Also I can still open the FM 11 admin console on my desktop without problems so I don't think it is a JAVA issue (FM12 Server running on a new machine, FM11 still operating on old server machine until we are ready to convert).
When I first tried, http:// IP address:16000 wouldn't load. I used the command window on the server and verified that port 16000 was listening but obviously there was some problem. So, I created a new inbound rule in my firewall for port 16000. After that I could at least get to the start page. Should I create another inbound rule for 16001?
Any ideas are appreciated
