    ODBC Connection with Filemaker Cloud

    Storganise

      Hi All,

       

      I have a Filemaker Cloud system ( version 1.15.2.32 ) set up, with a single shared database created in FM15.

       

      I want to use this filemaker database as a data source, so am trying to connect to it using ODBC.

       

      Using the ODBC Manager, once I have input the IP number, the connection fails with the following error...

       

      There was a problem connecting to the host.

      Failed to connect to listener (2)

       

      Could this be a port issue? If so, can anyone suggest where I might open up the correct port (1433??) in AWS?

       

      Maybe it is something else. I'm a little flummoxed.

       

      Thanks

          Hi All,

           

          A quick update for those experiencing the same problem - It was indeed a port issue. I had to go into my AWS control panel and then the Network security section. Then add in a new rule for inbound connections, and allow access for port 2399.

           

          This was alluded to in Filemaker's documentation, but I skimmed over it as it was specific to Filemaker Server and didn't have instructions regarding the Cloud.

           

          Thanks
