Why is an internet connection required for FMS to install on Windows Server?
System Requirements for FileMaker Server 15 | FileMaker
It also downloads and installs a number of un-packaged items if they aren't already installed.
I'll try to remember them
- Application request routing v3 (one day this download was offline from Microsoft so the installer was broken that day!)
- Java - currently Java 8 update 111
- IIS url rewrite module 2
- Microsoft External Cache
I think if you install those things first the FMS installer will skip over requesting them from the internet.
It possibly also requires
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 redistributable (not sure about that one)
It's needed during installation
Ah yes. How silly of me not to realize the extra items were downloaded as part of the process. Thanks CarlSchwarz
