Title

FMS13 Admin Console not available from IP address authorized for admin

Your post

     We have set up a 2 machine installation and told the Admin Console to allow a connection from a couple of other machines. The Database server is on a 10.9 Mac SERVER machine. I am assuming that Apple's Server software being installed is the root of this problem. All Firewalls are open for testing purposes. Before doing a reinstall I wanted to check if anyone has any ideas:

     When trying to connect at database.fqdn.com:16000 from the alternate machines the browser gives back :

     FileMaker Server has encountered an error:
     The requested resource is not available.
      

     If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance.

     Duplicating the address as appropriate from the FMS13 install : http://database.fqdn.com:16001/admin-console returns "Safari Cannot connect to the server"

     Suggestions for resolving this? Can the admin console take a range of IPs if I want to allow our FMS13 system to be editable from inside our private network? It would not accept 10.81.1.0/8.

     Thanks for looking at this.
