Clients can't see my server databases

Your post

     I am hoping this is just something simple I missed.  Yesterday I installed FM Server 13 on a dedicated server box in our data room.  It has an assigned ip address of (example).  When I go back to my desktop and start up my FM Advanced 13, it can "see" the server, but I can't upload to Filemaker server - I log on in the upload to FM server dialog with my server credentials, but when I try to link up I just get the hourglass for a while and then "connection failed".

     I thought I would go another route, so I copied my database into the FM server database folder:

     filewin:/C:/Program Files/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/

     I can now see the database under Activity/Databases in FM Server on the server box, but again, when I try to "Open Remote" from my desktop, I see the server but there are no databases listed.  I have tried this from two different client machines.  Any help?  This is running on a Windows 7 box.
