Will give you the users IP-address
Hi Johan =)
of my own PC yes. but not all PC´s in my asset management tool. =)
Might have written my question a bit bad =D sorry about that.
I need to check on each of the PC´s listed in my asset management tool. not the client am working on =)
You can when a user check in use the Get(SystemIPAddress) to get that users IP address.
You can not ask FileMaker natively to check other computers in your network. For that you need a plugin.
Maybe a web service could ping the hostname?
You'd need a web server running php or something similar. Set up a file to perform the lookup. The file would check the GET string for the hostname then perform the ping and return the result (might want to do some parsing first and just return true, false, or an error).
Then on the FileMaker side, to check the status of a PC, your script would use Insert From URL and specify the url: "mywebserver.com/myscript.php?host=[hostnameToPing]
thank you guys for the answers so far. seems to be really hard to get to work. :/
well am up for a challange if its possible =D
