Product and version FileMaker Pro 14.0.4, FMS 14.0.4

OS and version - FMS 10.9.5, FMP 10.9.5

Hardware - FMS Mac Mini

Description - FMP client cannot see file on server when SSL is in use on FMS

How to replicate - Install recommended SHA-256 SSL certificate on FMS and try to open files on client.

Workaround - None


I installed an SSL cert from the list. Specifically a GoDaddy Standard SSL certificate. I am having one FMP client that cannot see files when using open remote when SSL is in use on FMS. That client is OSX 10.9.5 with FMP 14.0.4. I cannot figure this out as I have another client also on OSX 10.9.5 that is using FMP 12.0.5 that can see the files.


I did a search around and the recommendation was to use a SHA-1 SSL certificate. These are no longer supported or issued by any of the FileMaker recommended CA's. I did check and OSX 10.9.5 is certified to trust the GoDaddy SHA-256 SSL certificate.
