So, I'm fairly inexperienced with all this and might be missing something totally obvious, but here it goes.


I have a FM server hosting an invoicing solution of mine. The whole setup worked fine as long as the solution was run locally on my computer, but using Filemaker server poses a few new problems, and one in particular. I've set up a script to save an invoice as a PDF in a local folder.


After some reading I've understood that this is not possible on a server solution due to security reasons which is understandable. What I'd like to do instead is sort of the same thing anyway, but save the PDF to the computer currently connected to the server, is this possible, if so, how?


The current script with server compatibility set is attached.


Also, if I'm being unclear or haven't provided enough information, tell me and I'll try to accommodate you as best I can.


Thanks in advance!
