I’ve used FM for years but this is my first time with FileMaker Go, and it’s not been a good experience so far.
I’ve created a simple test database called GoTest on a laptop (MBP running MacOS10.13.6 w/FMA 188.8.131.524). It has one field in it and two records. Per all the instructions I’ve found, I turned Network Sharing on with access for All Users.
On an iPhone (5s iOS 11.4.1) I downloaded the latest version of Fillemaker Go (17.0.4). I started the app and went to Hosts. I found my laptop name under local hosts and selected it. I then get a blank screen with No Files Available.
I’ve checked settings on both sides. Both devices are on the same wireless network.
I’ve tried a different device (iPhone 8) with the same results. If I close the database on the laptop, the host disappears.
I tried one of the supplied FMA templates with the same result.
I've looked at other discussions about others with this problem, but they don't seem to apply.
If I missed something I apologize.
I feel I’m missing something simple, but I don’t know what.
Anyone have any ideas?
