FMPS Status message : authentication failed on database... using Admin [fmwebdirect]

Your post

I have FMPS 13.0.4.400 installed with a simple test database that was created using the Contacts template.  This db is configured to require authentication.

If I just simply load this database's webd link and don't even try to authenticate, leaving the "Login" window open, FMPS shows this error:

warning', "Client [WebDirect] [IP Address] authentication failed on database "Contacts.fmp12: using "Admin [fmwebdirect]"

It's confusing and makes me think that someone tried to authenticate and failed with an invalid account.  I would expect for it to not throw up a warning unless the person tried to get in with an invalid account.
