My provider of cellular line no longer user ipv4 and use now only IPV6 but if in my host list of Filemaker GO 17 I enter the Wan IPV6 of my Router (like I was doing with IPV4) I can't connect to my Filemaker Server ?
What version of FMS?
Have you followed: Network problems - FileMaker Server 17 Help for troubleshooting steps? Note the square brackets that are required around IPv6 addresses eg: fmnet:/[x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x]/FileName
Is it a static IPv6 address?
Does your admin console for filemaker server note the same address?
Thank you for the answer.
More information for you: My issue is from Filemaker GO17 when I use my ipv4 like host address it work I can reach my server, but when I use the ipv6 like host address I can't connect ?
So I think my server setup is ok, and the port forwarding work well with ipv4 so it should work with ipv6 to because the wan ip address is not in the port forwarding, only the local ipv4.
Probably I miss something
Hi Mark, I understand your issue is in FMGo17, however we still need to know what version of Filemaker server you have in order to assist you.
The other questions I asked would also help. If FileMaker Server's admin console does not display the correct IPv6 address, then how would filemaker server know that users are connecting with that IP address?
If your ISP has provided you with an IPv6 address, then maybe you also need to update your router to make sure that traffic for that IP address is directed to your filemaker server. Maybe traffic is being stopped at the router because it doesn't know where to go.
I have Filemaker server 17.
For the admin console ip I have the local ip address and it's the port forwarding of my router who link my external ip address to the internal ip address of server (work with ipv4).
The router don't make difference of ipv4 or ipv6 it forward all incoming connection to the specified Lan ip address and port.
You may want to use a dynamic DNS service like DynDNS or No-IP so that you can use a domain name instead of an IP address. That will avoid issues when your router acquires a new IP address from your ISP.
