FMS 16 / Win Svr 2016 / Sophos AV

I have installed FMS 16 on to Windows Server 2016 and all is running good locally.


I tried to access my db from a remote client and although I followed the guide for the required ports in the Windows Firewall, I am still unable to see the dbs on the server, from a FMP client. If I turn the server firewall off, I can see all the dbs, no problem, so I am missing an unknown port / protocol?


Also, I have installed Sophos AV, as is the policy for all our servers and with previous FMS, the FIleMaker directory that holds the program and the directory that holds the databases are both excluded for scanning.

This has always worked before, but with FMS 16, the admin console won't load. The red box sits in the top right corner of the web page. The databases can be accessed via FMP clients, but the admin console cannot be used.


If I disable Sophos, then everything works fine.


Am I missing a new folder that supports part of the web process?


If you are able to help with either of these, I would be most grateful.
