How do I connect ODBC Manager to Filemaker?

I have a solution running on a Filemaker 16 server. I have accessed the server via VPN on a remote Mac and now want to access the data via ODBC on that remote Mac.

I have turned ON ODBC/JDBC for ALL USERS in the Filemaker file

I have downloaded ODBC Manager – the free version

But when I try access the Filemaker "System DSN" in the ODBC Manager, nothing appears. This is a mystery to me as this exact (and rather simple) setup works perfectly on my local network.

I originally set up the local network some time ago, so:

• Have I missed a step?

• Does the ODBC not work across a VPN as opposed to local network where it works great?

• Does the ODBC manager I am using not work on iOS Sierra?

• Is there something else that I am missing?

 

Notes: Filemaker 16

Mac OS Sierral

ODBC Manager: 1.0.12
