When you're trying to connect from a remote web machine which does not have the WPE itself installed on it, then rather than port 5003 being open, you need to the Windows machine set up as a single install, with the WPE running on that, and then port 80 open on that machine to receive data from the remote Linux server.
You can do two machine installs (where opening port 5003 becomes relevant) but both machines need to be running Windows or Mac - no part of an FM server config can be installed on Linux (sadly)…
So in summary - you need to get the Windows machine set up, as a single machine install, then open port 80 inbound to that machine, which will enable the Linux server to have the IP address of the Windows machine specified as the FM server.
Hope this makes sense - if not let me know and I'll explain a different way

Thank you very much, the problem is solved by using port 80 instead of port 5003.
It is indeed a pitty that there are no solutions for linux concerning the WPE or ODBC. Would have been usefull in our setup.
