    Delay open database from sersver



      Delay open database from sersver

      Your post

      Dear All

      I have Filemaker Server 9 in one of our mac computers and FileMaker pro  Advance 9.03v on my computer. Any time I try to access database form server File->Open Remote... then I click on Host, it takes 10 minutes to get files in "Available Files" box.


      Is there any way we can make that time shorter. It used to be quick two months ago but after last upgrade that problem happened.


      Please let me know if you need more details.


      Any help will be appreciated.


      Thanks in advance

          Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.


          When selecting "Open Remote", FileMaker Pro is looking across the networks for other FileMaker Pro files.  It could be that one of the servers works only intermittently.  What you may want to try is adding a few of the servers as an entry in "Favorite Hosts".  Then, use "Favorite Hosts" to select the file.  If you find one of the "Favorite Hosts" takes a long time to access, then the problem probably lies with that server.


          If you have found a solution, please let us know what it is so that others who run into the same situation can benefit.
