Hi Folks,


Our company is new to FMP and we have uploaded a test DB to the FMP 12 Advanced server but none of the clients can connect to it. When using open remote the local host is shown but the uploaded file and path are missing so the the open button remains "greyed out". I have checked that port 5003 and udp 5353 are open on the FMP 12 server and they are so I'm a bit baffled as to why the clients can't open the DB. I have also checked to make sure that network sharing was turned on within the file using the client before I uploaded it with the admin console. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,
