Retrieve console version

Hello Filemaker Community!
I'm stuck trying to find a good way to gather the console version, programmatically on the server.


I am already able to find the server version by running:

/Library/FileMaker\ Server/Database\ Server/bin/fmsadmin --version

This returns a version number in this format "13.0v10"


I'm interested in finding the version number that looks like this ""

After doing some poking around the only thing I've ended up with is running this:

curl -k https://localhost:16000

shows my console version to be:

Current Installed Version:


I'm trying to avoid using curl though. Is it possible to do something with the java files? I'm not good with java but I tried something like this with no luck:

sudo "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java" -jar fmversion.jar


no main manifest attribute, in fmversion.jar


If anyone out there knows a way to interact with this java file or has a better way to grab the console version I would be very grateful for it.
