I have purchased FLT Annual Volume License (5 users) for my client in US. Can i connect to this FileMaker server (FLT Server) from India using My FileMaker Pro Advanced?
Please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
Yes. As skywillmott told it is possible!
Be careful with external group access settings!

Short answer: Yes.
Your FileMaker Pro Advanced license enables you to connect to FileMaker Server without using up one of the FLT 'user connection' licenses. If you look in the Server Admin Console, under settings for Database Server -> FileMaker Clients, you will see it says:
"Your FileMaker Server license does not restrict the number of simultaneous FileMaker Pro client connections."
... which includes Pro Advanced, and allows you to set a maximum number of connections. The FileMaker Server Technical Specifications say that the 'tested' maximum is 500 connections, though is unrestricted and can theoretically handle more than that depending on hardware, app design etc.
The FLT 5 user limit is just for WebDirect, FileMaker Go and the 'free' FileMaker Pro (For User Connections) clients.
