URL to open database password problems

Filemaker 12 Help has an article "Opening shared databases remotely using a URL". In that document, they give this example:

 

FMP://MyAccount:MyPassword@192.168.10.0/My%20Addresses.fmp12

 

I understood this to mean that I can embed my username and password and create a pretty .inetloc that will open a remote file and log me in. Unfortunately, it's not working as expected. Filemaker starts right up and connects to my remote file, but the log-in box arrives with empty fields for username and password. Any advice?
