How do I get access to FMP 13 shared database?

Hey all, it's my job to get a database shared over the network to users. I can go in and share it (and yes, Network Sharing is turned on) but I can't seem to access it from my computer. We've done this in the past with FMP 8 but this database isn't accessible using the same kind of path. In Googling this problem I did see that /fmi/iwp paths won't work any longer.


I tried to change how this database is shared but my "Network access to file" options are greyed out. That leaves me stuck on "Specify users by privilege set." I was going to edit or create a new Privilege set but when I go to File > Manage everything there is greyed out. I checked for FMP local accounts on the computer itself but all I can find are the stock Windows accounts. Apparently I need some additional permissions within FMP.but I can't find a way to get them created and configured. All ideas, suggestions and recommendations would be appreciated.
