Sharing a file

Hi all,


I need a basic sharing question answered. I thought I had a handle on it but need to check.


I have a front end file and a back end file.  Front end is user interface, back end is data.  Front end looks at the back end file for the data.  As it stands I use FM Pro for the 4 users, they all login on their own machine with a standard login which works fine.  I now want to put in access rights into the file.  I don't want to put all users in the 'front end' file, I want to be able to put them in the 'back end' file which nobody opens.


I can't get the front end to look at the back end for user rights, it only allows me to do it if I input all users into the front end file.


Do I need to have server for this or can I make the front end look at the back end for access using FM Pro Adv?
