Problems accessing a File Maker database through a VPN tunnel and through a WAN link.

Your post

Hi there.  I have a filemaker 10 server and a bunch of file maker 9 clients (server may be 9 I can veryify if need be.) I can access my remotely shared database from within my LAN, but when I try to use a VPN tunnel (site to site) or a static public IP address with port 5003 being forwarded through our firewall.  No dice.  It says either the host or database is not there.  Please advise, I need non-web access to our database from this remote client.  Thanks for your time in advance.
