FM Server Admin Console on remote computer not working

Your post

Hello,

 

I am trying to run Admin Console from a computer other than the FM Server itself. I can access the console locally but when attempting to do it from another computer it takes a long time then eventually errors out.

 

I do not have the server limited to local access only. I use the following method of opening the console:

 

1. In FireFox (v2 and v3) I enter 'ipaddress:16000' and load the start page.

2. From the start page I click on the Admin Console icon, it begins to download a file with a '.jnlp' extention and reports that it is launching the admin console.

3. after a long time (more than 5 minutes sometimes) I get an error message that reports connection to the server has failed. (The specific error message is: Admin Server Connection Error: The admin console cannot establish a connection to the admin server.)

 

I have made sure that port 16000 is open on the FM server machine. Is there anything else I am over looking?

 

TIA for responding,

hf2
