    Firewall denies fmscwp access

    dirkms

      Hi,

       

      I'm running a Filemaker 15 app on a MacOS X 10.11 Server in a data center, accessing via internet. Clients can access properly with the firewall enabled.

       

      In order to distribute a small amount of information to a bigger audience, I set up a website using PHP and Filemaker API for PHP. That works perfectly, but only if the firewall is disabled. If the firewall is enabled, I get an error 500, there is no access via Filemaker API for PHP.

       

      The firewall is configured as described in the knowledge base: Following services are opened:

      • fmsased
      • fmscwpc (located /Library/FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/cwpc/bin/)
      • fmserver_helperd
      • fmserverd
      • fmsgetpasskey
      • fmsib
      • fmxdbc_listener

      So:

      Firewall disabled: access via client and fmscwp is possible. (that rules out any db security issues, doesn't it?)

      Firewall enabled: access via client is possible, fmscwp is denied.

       

      What do I miss?

       

      Best

      Dirk
