Hi, can anyone help with an error: FileMaker can't share files because other user is sharing files with FM Pro in this equipment?
Not enough information...
This typically means that port 5003 is already in use. Do you have multiple versions of FM open? Is FMS running on that machine?
I just removed older FM Versions from this equipment. FM Server is installed but not running.
I think I find the solution...
I had in the Ipad an older version of FM Go, and once I removed it, i get no more messages.
Hopefully this was it.
That would not be it though... FM Go can not share files.
That FMS is installed is probably a more likely culprit. When the FMS db engine starts it grabs port 5003, even if it is not hosting any files.
From the command line do:
sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms
Then see if you can share a file through FMP.
But I have to ask: why try to share a file through FMP when you have FMS?
And why is FMS installed in the first place (assuming that this just your own development desktop?)
I installed FMS recently as a trial to participate in a webinar. I have no interest in keeping FMS in so far.
Will the problem be solved if I uninstall it?
And then run your command?
Is there a preferred way to uninstall FMS?
When trying to run the command asks me the FMS password, which I can't find yet
The password requested was the equipment, not the server
I ran the command and it worked fine
I'll be working in the uninstalling process to avoid any further port conflicts
Thanks for your support
