      Web server won't work after trial filemaker server advanced installed

      Your post

      I wanted to try Instant web publishing on a mac mini server.  I had filemaker server running on a local network and could access it through a VPN connection just fine.  The mac server also showed up in web browsers when connected to the network either locally or through VPN. Now, The filemaker program on a client machine can access the filemaker server program over the the local network and through the VPN over the internet connection.  The filemaker programs use the static IP of the server which is 10.0.1.5.  The VPN also uses this address.   However a web browser on the local network or over the net with the VPN connected cannot connect to the server using the same IP http://10.0.1.5/.  Prior to upgrading from Filemaker server to Filemaker server advanced, the browser would connect fine. The filemaker server advanced program runs a set-up routine to turn on web-publishing and continues to give a message " an error was encountered communicating with the server,and the web server is not configured."
