I also tried (port 80 assumed):



I also tried:



I also tried:



But in all four cases, despite the fact I can open a FMS database remotely (using FileMaker), I get this error:


HTTP Status 503 - Service unavailable: The worker machine is not running.

FileMaker Server has encountered an error:

If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance.


If I omit the <database_name> I see the databases, but this error occurs when I click on one of the shown databases to open it in the browser.




I don't have anything, like Apache, running on port 80 at the moment so could that be a problem?
