Sharing FM16 dbase remotely

My business partner and I each work from our homes and each have our own versions of FM16 Pro Adv... on Win10.
I would like to share my database with my partner ... tried using 'Share with Filemaker Clients...' -- enabled TCP/IP -- selected all users -- then gave the IP address to my partner to try to access file --

 

My partner went to ... Open Remote...  ( set me up as Host using the IP address I gave )... but Connection Failed
( fyi, we both got Windows Defender message and told it to Allow Access on both computers )

 

Are we doing something wrong... or are we trying to do something that can't be done?
