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 and, I assume this is a Client Bug.


Client: FM 17.0.3 Windows 10

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