Understanding Server....

Your post

I have watched the "what's new in FMP 12" video, but it has no useful information on what's involved to actually set up a Server or Server Advanced version of the product.

My questions, just off the top of my head, include:

1. Do I need to buy a separate box (mac mini, for example) for the FMP server software?

2. Do I need to punch a hole in my firewall to allow external requests to get to the FMP server or do they happen on Port 80 (or what)?

3. What are the settings I need?

4. How difficult is all this to set up?

I understand there's an FMP Server white paper, but white papers, at least in my experience, tend to still be at one level too general for what you really need to implement something.

I'm sure once you get everything setup, FMP will shine. With Server, however, I'm not sure how to get there or how to really connect "Go" clients. Resources like books that have infromation on this are scarce to say the least.

Thanks in advance for any info.
