Open Remote Set Up
Struggle getting connected via open remote to FM server files which is located in another city.
Last time I did this only needed two ip addresses - server machine mount point and for FM server.
This time FM server is on a windows server machine in another city.
can't get connected. Where do I find the instructions? or can you help?
Here is what the IT guy gave me:
(You will be using VPN to: (mail.xxxx.org) connect to the office.
From there, you will RDP to the server at: (IP address) or to whatever other machine hosts the FileMaker server.)
Thanks for your help!
RDP (remote desktop) access to the server won't work except as a way to access and manage the server. If you can use RDP to access a client machine with FileMaker Pro installed on it, you can then launch fileMaker Pro on the client machine to access the databases hosted on server.
