Disappointment

I am extremely disappointed with FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Server. FileMaker claims they are so "pro business" yet they provide little to no support to a small business that doesn't fit into their cookie cutter LAN server solution. Web Direct sounds great but does not work well. There are very few people who know anything or are willing to help with WAN Server support. Everyone I have talked to tells me to go ask someone else. FileMaker Support tells me to go talk to ATT. ATT tells me to talk to FileMaker. I can't believe that literally no one I can find used a Mac, FileMaker Pro Server and has an ATT 2-wire box for U-Verse. I have my own domain, a static IP address and we can get as far as the ATT Arris box and then no further. I used to be very impressed and would tell everyone to use FMP but no longer.
