What do you get if you just go to Favorite Hosts > Add and put in the IP address (or DNS name) of the server?
" The file xxx.fmp12 could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not avalable on that host. "
No, don't put in the file name. Just put in the server (IP or DNS name) and save it as a favorite. Then click on it in the server list. Do any files show up?
Is anyone able to connect over the Internet? If do then can they supply a link.
Which port are you trying to connect over? I've not used the port number in the connection path before as I always use the default (5003). Is port 5003 open and configured correctly?
ok ill try, thanks Mike
The iPads work great.
It is the FileMaker App on my iMac. The filemaker db is at another site
Two things solved my issue.
1-Upgrade to FileMaker 12
2-Mr Mike Mitchell suggested add a favorite host
Worked like a charm.
Thanks from the newbie.
