Web Viewer from fmnet connection
I have several people connecting to a database that need to see (but not edit or download) jpeg images. The images are stored by reference on a computer acting as a FM11 Server. We have eliminated:
1. Embed images in Filemaker - Over 40,000 files not practical
2. 360Works Super Container - It is a small animal rescue non-profit group. Not possible to fund.
3. Upgrade to FM12? I am not sure it would even work but again we cannot afford the cost.
4. Display images using a web viewer container. Is this possible? User connect now with something like fmnet:/69.xxx.xx.xxx/DatabaseFile. Any attempts I have made to create a URL where the folder containing the images (remember 40K) resides within a folder holding the main database file have been in vain. Do I need the ip address in the URL to view the file remotely? A simple url like this does not work
"imagewin:///MYSERVER-PC/MyServer/Desktop/My Database/Scan 35K/35584-Registration.jpg"
Is this even possible. I have spent most of today searching the form and internet for a solution (remember funding not possible) and can find nothing.
