I have a strange situation.
I have 6 different companies in different areas accessing a server (FMserver14) hosed in a Data centre.
These clients have been accessing the same server without any problem for 1-6 years.
Simultaneously (Monday last week), they have a problem connecting. In an office of 4 people, only one can connect.
Some offices are all on FMP15- mac and windows. Only one Windows can connect.
Other offices, only one person can connect - largely FMP13 users.
I setup a second server, and transferred some of the files there. Everyone can connect to that one, so there is no issue with their FMP software, nor connection, nor the file.
I have managed to replicate the problem on my Mac, whereby if I use FMP 14 Adv, I can connect (to everything). On the same Mac, I have a copy of FMP12. It can Connect to the new server but it cant connect to the old one - the same problem the clients are having - "this file is not available on this host...."
So the server hosts then created a new server, same IP address. I loaded Server 15 on it. Port 5003 is open and I can connect to the databases, but only from Windows PC and Mac using 14Adv. - i.e. back to where I was.
I can access using FMgo.
Sharing is enabled.
Firewalls are open.
There is no consistency and no common denominator to this error.
Any suggestions ?
