I am trying to open or make port 8998 available for FM server, can anyone point me in the right direction?
Maybe this will help?
Open ports on the server firewall
Not sure what OS you're using, but a two second Internet search found the link above and others.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
You don't need to open.
If the port is already used by another program, it can't run with FMS.
Is there a way to tell what programs are using what ports?
Yes. What OS, please!

I am accessing the 2008 server from a mac.
What OS (include numbers) is the Server (where ports are to be opened)?
More specifics will help us get you better answers.
Open "command prompt" on Windows, then use "netstat" command. See help with
If you have problem, the program can be Cisco **
Port 8998 is an internal port used by server only. You shouldn't be trying to access it via a mac or other remote client.
In a dual server set-up the web server needs to use it to access the main FileMaker Database server
It is not correct in detail, 8998 is used not only dual server and not used to access db server.
