      Trouble quickly opening FMS hosted files using External Authentication

      Your post

      I am using FMS 10 and FMP 10.

      I currently have a system that uses an opener file that is published to all of my users.  The opener file contains a single script that does an Open File command to connect the users to my FMS hosted database.  All connections are made as the same user.

      I have also successfully setup External Authentication on the FMS hosted database and can open FMP, navigate to File->Open Remote, select the server and database, and authenticate as the correct user.

      I have not been able to use a generic opener file and successfully connect using external authentication as a specific user.  When the opener file calls Open File, the user is connected as the generic user that the opener file uses.  From what I have read, FMP doesn't support External Authentication (only FMS) 

      Is there a way to create and use a generic opener file to connect to a FMS hosted database using External Authentication?
