Windows 8 Client having problems connecting to FileMaker server.

Your post

     I have a windows 8 tablet computer that I've installed Filemaker 11.02 on, and I'm trying to connect to a remote FileMaker server instance on the same network.

     I get the following error "The file "xxxxx" could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host."

     If I grab my windows 7 laptop and open the same remote file I'm in just fine.  I've tested connectivity on port 5003... (telnet) and I'm able to connect.  I get the open window dialogue (bonjour is installed).

      

     Are any of you having this issue?  I can't seem to find anything relative to my problem.

      

     Thanks for any help!
