FM Server 10 Advanced: No JDBC port open
I am trying to get an application I've written to talk to a FileMaker 10 Server Advanced installation using JDBC on MacOS X.
However, I cannot work out how to get the FM Server to listen on port 2399 for the JDBC connection. I have checked all of the points listed at the end of Chapter 4 of the ODBC/JDBC guide, and I'm reasonably sure I've got them all set up correctly. The problem is that
$ netstat -an | grep 2399
returns nothing -- the server is not listening on port 2399, and so I can't connect to it via JDBC. Neither I nor my colleague who runs the FileMaker database can see what else we need to do to make this work. What have we missed?
Have you configured FM Server to allow xDBC connections?
See the following KB article first.
If it doesn't solve your problem, check the server's event log to see if there is any error while starting xDBC.
