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
