Thank you for your post.
FileMaker, Inc. neither speculates nor discusses future products.
I recommend that you also post this to the Product Ideas board at:
This board is monitored by Product Management and Development. All entries are discussed and considered for possible implementation in a future release.
It is unfortunate, but this seems to be the attitude of a number of FileMaker Support staff. As a consequence, we have just blocked our FileMaker 14 server from the outside world. ie. it is now being used only for internal clients only.
A sepparate Unix-based web database server will now service our external clients.
Thank you TSGal, I've reposted in Product Ideas but I most definitely see this as more of a "Product Issue" and less of a "great idea."
SHA-1 SSL certs have been deprecated by Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, etc. Version 14 should never have included them.
Are you kidding me... I just paid quite a chunk of money for my certificate through Thawte and I have web direct and I cannot login from any web-browser. It shows the index.html page I created but once it sends the user to the login page a never ending spinning wheel shows.
Is this due to the certificate?
I did a Get(ConnectionState) and it shows 2
I also use Get(ConnectionAttributes) and I can see
[ Peer Certificate ]
CA Issuers: thawte DV SSL CA - G2
but on both my FM clients and GO I get the black padlock.
What can I do?????
When you purchased the Thawte certificate, you should have selected "Use SHA-256 for the certificate and SHA-1 for the root CA" for Signature hash algorithm during purchase of the certificate. This is described in more detail under Knowledge Base Article #11413 "List of supported SSL certificate types and vendors for FileMaker platform".
Contact Thawte directly to get the correct certificate.
