Firewall issues w/Winserver 2008 and FMS 10
Server System: Windows Server Standard, SP 1, Filemaker Server 10.
Client Systems: Windows XP, SP3, FMP 10 v2
The scope for each of these "exceptions" is "any computer".
When I first boot the server, I can open a hosted file from a client machine. After a few minutes pass, if I stop and restart the client FMP 10, or attempt to connect to the hosted files from a different client machine, the server has disappeared from the Hosts list. I can make the server reappear, by using the admin console to stop and restart the database server. I can also make the server reappear if I turn off the firewall on the server. In fact, if I leave the firewall turned off, the problem does not occur.
This suggests that server's firewall is not correctly configured.
Any guesses as to what I've done wrong?
I had some mistyped port numbers. I'm cautiously optimistic that I've now got FMS 10 running without incident on Windows Server 2008 and with the firewall turned on. If everything's still green by Monday, I'll accept my own solution and close the thread.
