    Server setup correctly?



      Server setup correctly?

      Your post

           Im in the process of learning FMP & FPM-S. I installed the server. However the web publishing engine has an odd IP listed with it?

           However all my other stuff is listed in the range? is something wrong.

           So far when I go to my servers IP address: all is show me is "Filemaker Database Server Website"


           What am I doing wrong? I've enabled web direct publishing but still see nothing. Let me know if I just missed something in the setup process, or didn't read the manual enough. but the 127.... ip address struck me as odd.

               Thank you for the post.


      is the loopback I.P. address for any computer.


               More information on that can be found here:


          localhost or loopback


               If the FileMaker Server 13 installed without error and successfully deployed, then the WebDirect Start Page can be accessed at the following URL:


               http://<server I.P. address>/fmi/webD


               Are you able to access the WebDirect start page at the above URL using your server's I.P. address?


               Additionally, here is the FileMaker 13 WebDirect Guide:

               Please let me know if any of the above needs further clarification.
