Just a bit of extra info. Trying to connect with a client right now, can see the server fine, no available databases found. When I check "netstat -a" on the Server side, I see one connection from the client:
TCP server:5003 client:49977 ESTABLISHED
I think the port on the client side changes every time... so I've thought it might be possible some client ports work and some don't (but this happens on -every- client I try to connect to the server), so that trying over and over again eventually stumbles on a port that works. However, like I said, this is all conjecture.
Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.
First, I recommend downloading and installing FileMaker Server 9.0v3.
Is it always the same clients that have trouble opening remote files? Or, does everyone have the problem?
When this does occur, do you notice any problems with Admin Console not responding? Is everyone else unable to access remote files at this point?
Any other information you can provide would be helpful.
