In your browser enter the new ip address plus the port number (16000) then drag this to your desktop or wherever you like. This will save it as an icon that can be clicked to take to the admin console login page. I usually drag the file to the dock. The other thing is to not set your mini ip address via dhcp.
Thank you for the reply.
That worked however it says "Access to the specified resource () has been forbidden"
I should say that this mac server used to be an open directory server but now that is not working because of the IP address change as well so I am guessing that it is trying to log in with a directory account. Is there a way I can specify to use a local account?
I'm assuming that when you access the files. It's via Bonjour, I.e. "Eric's Mac mini", yes? This may or may not be relevant.
I should add some more details, I recently took over supporting a company. They run only macs (I have never really used mac hehe) The clients (remote) had been accessing filemaker simply by using the WAN IP of the office. (The previous tech sent the mac mini as an open directory server as well as the file maker pro server. And used DHCP)
When I go into the server and change the IP to what it used to be I can open up the admin console of filemaker, however I can not keep the server on this IP as on the network we are on is already setup using 192.x.x.x
I am wondering if after changing the IP back to its original IP there is somewhere in the admin console I can tell it to use the new 192 IP address so that once back with the static 192 IP I can access the admin console
