    FMP://    not working ?

    user22621

      When I try to use "FMP://" I can't connect example:

      Working:

      http://142.79.209.154/fmi/webd#GraphDT

      Not workin:

      FMP://142.79.209.154/GraphDT

      FMP://user:password@142.79.209.154/GraphDT

      I have a Filemaker Server 14, do you have an idea of my issue ?

          It is working as expected.

          The web server works as several purpose (admin console, container donwload/upload etc.), for Web Direct the URL need webd in it.

          If you are experienced with IIS or Apache configuration, you would be able to change the behavior.

            It sounds like the FMP:// protocol is not correctly set up on your machine. Do you have FileMaker installed on it (not just FM Server on the 142.79.209.154 machine)?

             

            Use the http:// protocol through a browser to access via Web Direct and use the FMP:// protocol through a browser to launch FileMaker Pro with the specified database.

             

            Hope this helps!

              Aha, I misleaded by "working" part. I thought you want to shorten the URL for webd.

               

              danielfarnan is correct, fmp: does nothing with web server, so you can get nothing from http: with webd is working.

              It works all at client, that launch FMP with the URL. Opening database is the job of FMP, not browser nor url.

              Can you open the database using "Open remote" in FMP?
