I made a database and it was hosted on a Mac desktop computer through the "Share with Filemaker Clients" option, and then I just made sure that my iPad was on the same wifi network. Everything was working fine.
So I ended up changing to a different wifi network, as not everyone using the file has access to the first wifi network. Now I can't access the file on my iPad when on this new wifi network. However, I can still access it from a different desktop computer than the host computer when on the new network. Am I missing something?
