Do you have all the necessary ports open, both in the Windows Firewall as well as any security groups you have set up?
Remember to include ports 16002 and 16003. These are documented on page 23 of the FMS 16 install guide.
And do you have any DNS set up? You might set up a couple A records to point to the EIPs you have on your machines now. If not using SSL, you can check the box that comes up about bypassing the cert when connecting.
I also got some help on another discussion group from Jesse Barnum. Your suggestions echoed his.
The solution that worked for me was:
- Turn off the Windows Firewall on both machines.
- Add all of the ports specified by FileMaker's documentation to the associated Security Group in EC2.
Doing that solved it.
Thanks for your input.
