FMS 17 ghost webdirect connections with same IP address

I just switched over from FMS 16 to FMS 17.0.2. I am running on WIndows Server Standard 2016 with 16GB ram with 6 cores. I have started getting multiple ghost webdirect connections per user login, all with the same ip address across multiple logged in users. There are sometimes only 10 users logged via webdirect but they are consuming up to 70 connections because of the ghost connections which brings the CWP to a standstill.


FMS 17 webdirect timeout is set to 5 mins and the privilege set for webdirect users is also set to disconnect idle users.

The FMS disconnect client button does not work either and the only way i can disconnect them without restarting the Filemaker services is to change the timeout for webdirect users which then disconnects all webdirect connections.


I never had this issue while running on FMS 16 and webdirect ran well without any issues.


Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?
