Web Direct 17 -Worker Unavailable

I'm trying to get Web Direct (multiple machines) working on  FileMaker Server 17.

Running on Windows Server 2016. Worker machine is in dmz outside firewall.

I connected the worker machine to the master using worker deployment assistant and got "Successfully Connected"

Used FQDNs when connecting to master. Certificates successfully imported.

Have green lock when connected to master from FileMaker Pro Advanced.17

 

It says Worker Machine 1 - Unavailable - in Admin Console and when I flip the switch for worker, it stays on for around 15 seconds and then turns off.

Everything looks good on the  WebDirect launch page on the worker machine.

But when I click the file (FMServer_Sample) , I get "Not Secure" and it displays the master machine name, not the worker as the URL.  I am able to access the file but need a secure connection with DMZ server used.

Certificates are the same on both servers.

This all worked in FMS16.

 

Any ideas on why this is happening? I've reinstalled FMServer on both master and worker and still get the same results.
