A simple normal openener file to open a remote file.
For testing I entered the ip for the eventual win server ( the in service database) and my local test server in the EDS File path list
So if it can't find the first path ( the client location server), it should fall back to the next choice ( my local server)
Target A - the clients server
Target B - my LAN test server
It does, eventaully. This takes a (timed) minute, all the time with a spinning pizza wheel. Activity Monitor shows FM 'not responding' - which initiall I assumed was a legitimate hang, and forced quit multiple times.
A wait of this duration, should it occur, is going to be an issue
An added trap for an error result has not yet returned a result; so no telling how long that may take if it can't find either target
I would like to time it to say 20 seconds, no connection, abort at 20 seconds
