Hello, I have a new implementation of FileMaker Server 15 that I have a few clients that get a Connection Failed error. The location was using FileMaker Pro 14, standalone, and is now FMS 15 using the "server client". The clients having issues are those that were running the FMP14 standalone. I have uninstalled FMP14 and installed the FMP 15 "server client" but get the same result...Connection Failed.


I have other clients that are new to FMP (meaning they never had any previous installs) and they work without issue.


I have tested 2 fresh OS install boxes and can duplicate the issue using the following:

  1. Install FMP14,
  2. Test host - Connection Failed,
  3. Uninstall FMP14,
  4. Install FMP15 "server client",
  5. Test host - works.


These are all Windows boxes. I have checked the Firewall settings. All the same version now. Ran Revo Uninstaller as well without any luck.


I am in the process of re-imaging a system to test a manually registry clean-up, just wanted to see if anyone had seen this before.


I thank you in advance for your time and help.
