      FM Server 14 only connects Web Direct on local network

      Your post

      I know I'm probably missing something simple.  I have installed FM Server 14 on my iMac and have successfully uploaded about 5 databases.

      I can access them from the desktop using the hosted location and I can access remotely with my MacBook Air and also iPad or iPhone using FM Go.

      Outside of my home network, I can't access the files, getting a message indicating:

      "FileMaker Web Direct could open the page because the server stopped responding"

      Haven't worked much with server.  Is this because I need a static IP address?  The server address appears to be a private IP starting with 10.0.x.x 

      I have gone back and forth through the Server 14 Getting Started but can't seem to get past this.
