Title

Containers and web viewers

Your post

I'm running Filemaker Server 10 wth some local and some remote clients. The remote clients use a mixure of the FM10 from home or FM GO on the road. My database contains details of properties and tenants.

We keep images of both tenants and properties which are stored on a drive running on the same Mac as the FM Server. These are included as referenced files in containter fields which works perfectly in a local environment/on the same network but don't work at all remotely because the remote users don't have access to the local network (and don't eed to to use FM) therefore the image  paths become invalid.

I want the server to reference theese images, not the clients and the container fields to display the images remotely too. How can I do this?

A similar issue occurs with the web viewer if I want to display the contents of a networked folder.
