    ODBC connections fails - can´t connect listener host

      Hello eyerybody!

       

      I try to implement odbc to my filemaker database. First I have installed the xDBC file from the installation disc. Next I installed the odbc manager. I start the odbc manager and I find the "obdc filemaker" to select. I give a name to my connection. In the next step I have to name the host. The filemaker help says, if your database is located on your computer the host is "localhost" or "127.0.0.1".

      But both possibilities are not working, allthough my database is located on my desktop. I always get the error-message: "faild to connect to listenener".

       

      Could anyone give me some advice?

       

      regards, tobias
