prior to FMP13, files have to be uploaded to the server using the admin-console - The admin-console can be launched from a client or from the server. There is no way to upload a file from within FileMaker Pro Advanced
Edit: You don't have FM server - so You need to copy the DB to the machine running ADV12 and open tht file with FileMaker. FM client is user-driven, not a service
I am running FMAdv 13 pro. I was under the impression that I can upload from this to the FM server even if it is FMS12?
I would still like to know how to access my db over the internet though as well if you can help with that??
You can upload files from FMPA 13 to FILEMAKER SERVER, not to a server machine on its own.
Yes - but You need a FMS13... FMS12 (and older, beginning with ~FMS9) needs the Admin-Console for uploading
Accessing the server over the internet:
- a service like dynDNS (defines a 'logic' address for the altering IP from a provider) or a static IP-address from Your provider
- port 5003 must be forwarded to the server-machine (port-forwarding on the router)
Thank you Markus - is there a free version of the dynDNS?
Sorry - It appears I didnt mention I am running FM12ASDV SERVER on my mac server...not fm12proadv
