Hi,

 

Im trying to connect to our work server from an iPad, and have run into a bit of difficulty.

The hosted file works fine whilst I am connected to the same WiFi network, but I cannot connect to it when outside of the WiFi range

 

I have tried using the external IP address of the host, but it doesn't display any available files.

It seems like the devices are communicating, because if I try a random IP i know shouldn't connect, it take about 20 seconds before coming up with the message, but when using the external IP it comes up instantly.

 

Are there any settings I need to change on the filemaker server to allow external connection?

Or has anyone had this same problem?

 

Thanks in advance!
