    username's on terminal server



      username's on terminal server

      Your post

      Hello to you all


      On a windows network with windows server 2003

      I've installed filemaker 10 VLA (12 users) on the terminal server and filemaker 10 server on an other machine.


      Everything works fine except everyone who works via the terminal server has the same name, when i view the clients in the filemaker server admin console.

      I think it's the name i gave filemaker pro when installing it on the terminal server. They also all have the same IP address.

      When i use FM 11 advanced installed on my machine, i get my username and ip adres - no problem here.

      It's just the people who works on the terminal server


      Can i fix this? So i can get the users name?

      I would really appreciate a solution,


      kind regards,

          Have them go under the "Edit" and "Preferences" and set their username.

          Or make a script that sets the registry when they log in such as this:



          Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
          Set oEnv = oShell.Environment("Process")
          strUser = CStr(oEnv("USERNAME"))
          oShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro\10.0\Preferences\User Name", strUser
          oShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro\10.0\Preferences\Hide Update Notification", "1"
