Having trouble connecting to a hosted FM 15 db running on Windows Server 2012.  I have a pair of FM databases running on FM server on a Windows Server box. Inside the building I can connect via my iPhone with FM Go without issue. Works as it should.  We have a static IP from our internet provider. We opened port 80 and 443 in the firewall.  We have setup DNS and even using the IP address there it does not connect.  Inside the building via browser traffic passes I get the cert warning then just a blank screen. Do we need to port forward on 5003 as documentation suggests? I have the FM Server configured for WebDirect sharing and pretty much every other setting at default.  Not sure what I am missing on this.


Anyone have some suggestions.
