Myself and my colleague are sharing a FMP15 file - or at least we were. I'm hosting the file on my iMac. I have set up a static IP and have opened up port 5003 on my router. My colleague has been able to connect to the shared file - until last night, when he could not get in. The message was something like 'host not available, or file not available on the host'. I was able to access the file on our home network using FMGo, so we know the file is available. The file is password protected BTW. I don't know a great deal about networking but I think the static IP refers to my router - but the device the file is running on (my iMac) has its own IP address, which is not static. I don't think this has changed - but even if it has, I have updated the port /device assignment. Do you think the problem is more likely to be at my colleague's end? Or is there something not right my end.
Thanks for your help!
PS. I know I should be using FM Server, but this is a tiny enterprise. When we go global, maybe...
Just an update on this 'problem'. Seems that everything my end was fine and the problem was at the other end. But apparently now sorted!
