FileMaker 17.0.3 (Win) Fails to connect to server 17.02

We have this issue at two separate client locations:

 

When connecting to a file on the server (either via "recent" or via "My Apps", the connection fails with the following error: "The file "****" could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host"

 

When connecting to that host via "Local Hosts": you can see the host, but the connection fails.

 

Solution: add the host to your favorite hosts with the IP-number of the server, then you can connect again.

 

As this happens with both server 17.0.2.203 and 17.0.2.252, I assume this is a Client Bug.

 

Client: FM 17.0.3 Windows 10

Server: MacMini, FMS 17.0.2.203 Mac OS 10.13.6 and MacMini, FMS 17.0.2.252 Mac OS 10.14.2
