      Host's Capacity Exceeded ( the file could not be opened )

      Your post

           The file ... could not be opened.  The host's capacity was exceed.  Try again later.
           from FMGo 13

           FM 13 Server OS X 10.9.2 dedicated hardware.
           Client FMGo 13

           I am the only one on this server and it should support 250 client connections.

           In the status window on the server

           A Total of 1 Filemaker WebDirect and Go clients were denied access during the last 60 minutes9s) because the concurrent connection limit (1) was exceeded

           No max idle time currently set

           Sometimes it says

           Confirm

           Communication with the host was interrupted.  Do you want to try to reconnect., but I am on the same local area network and the internet has not gone down.  I am coming at it from and external dyndns.org address however.

           Status panel says

           Client ...no longer responding: connection closed.

           sigh...

           any suggestions most welcome. Must be missing the obvious

           Thank you

               Were you at the same time connected to Server from a computer?

               The error message indicates that only one device can access the hosted Db at a time. This is a licensing restriction not a setting on the server so setting it to permit 250 client connections is not the limiting factor, it's the number of connections your particular license for server permits which is 1 according to the error message.
