Filemaker GO not connecting to external DB

Hey guys,

 

I have a simple Filemaker solution split into UI and DATA files. The DATA file is hosted on FMPHost, and the UI file is stored on computer and iPad. The path to the DATA file is:

 

fmnet:/nXXX.fmphost.com/the_file

 

When accessing it using the desktop, the file works properly (loading the external DATA file). When using the iPad, the external DATA file fails to load and those fields are replaced with "<file missing>". The UI files are identical, so I don't know why it doesn't work on Filemaker GO. Could someone possibly point me in the right direction as to what I could check for?
