Problems Installing Filemaker Server 10 (Admin Server Connection Error)

Your post

After initial installation from DVD on a new Mac Mini Server (Snow Leopard) the Filemaker Server Admin Console page opens up and downloads admin_console_init_webstart.jnlp. It's obviously trying to do something but then it gives me an Admin Server Connection Error (Unknown Error).

 

This is extremely frustrating. I've searched the forum and this seems a common problem but none of the solutions I've seen seem to help. There are no previous installations of Filemaker and as the server is new, the Java settings seem up to date. Am I missing something really obvious? I tried ringing the tech helpline but have been put through to some incomprehensible voicemail each time which merely added to my irritation.

 

I wouldn't class myself as highly technical so a clear explanation of the possible problems and ways to resolve them would be much appreciated. Thanks
