Hi and please go easy on me, I am very novice with FM but have used it for decades as my Invoice database.  I'll explain what I need to accomplish.  I work on multiple computers, around my home/office as well as an office in

another city.  I would like to able to access Filemaker from ANY computer, both "local network" as well as remotely

from any other location - in order to enter new invoices and eliminate the extra steps of having to wait til I get back

to the MAIN computer on which FM app exists. 


Can this be done through Filemaker independently, or, do I need to use something like LogMeIn or Apple Remote client sharing to access it from other computers?  BTW I am totally Mac-based... and running 10.8.5 OS on the main computer if that's of any consequence.


Thanks for any advice on options,
