Users are disconnected

I have built a solution for a carrier company where 10 drivers are connected with Filemaker Go from their iPhones to a remote Filemaker 12 server.

Every driver have their own usernames and see their respective assignments in the solution.


The problem is that they are disconnected as soon as they leave their current WiFI/3G network. Every time they pick up the phone they have to log in again! Tedious and not very effective.

They all belong to a group with a disconnection time of 5 hrs (extended privileges: "fmreauthenticate"), and this works as long as they are on the same network.



I really don't want to distribute a "local database per iphone" solution. Is there a way to keep the user logged in no matter how she connects?


Any ideas?
