Lawrence, your timing is very interesting, as I spent an hour on the phone with a fellow developer yesterday complaining about the same thing. In his case he is running FileMaker Licensing for Teams, which is performing very slow compared to his copy of FileMaker 15 Advanced running on the same terminal server and his own development TS.
The solution he is considering is to request to change his licensing from FLT to a standard AVLA. Are you running licensing for teams or a standard VLA/AVLA?
He has a few tests to finish, such as running a copy of FLT FM Pro on the same account he's using Advanced on, but at the moment his assumption is that FLT is the problem. I've been through DNS and possible routing issues, but he insists his network is very straightforward.
We're running AVLA licenses on 6 different RDS servers without any problems, albeit streaming via Citrix and RemoteApp.
We'd love to hear from anyone running licensing for teams on a Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Server who is not having any speed issues.
Lawrence, on your particular problem, are you sure you don't have a network setup where network traffic could be escaping over the Internet that would result in latency?
My client has an FLT license, but I also have FM 15 Advanced on the same machine and it runs just as slow as FM Pro. I’ve other clients running FM 15 via terminal services but they’re also using either Citrix or Parallel Application Server.
FLT license for FM 14 runs fine on the same machine connecting to FMS 15.
Please do let me know how your fellow developer’s idea for changing licensing workout.
Thanks so much for your response,
