Setting up a co-workers computer and have run into a confusing problem.


Installing FM Pro 10 is successful. It connects to our remote server and they can access the hosted databases.


Installed FM Pro Advanced 10 has brought some problems. It can see the IP address of the remote server but cannot load a list of the hosted databases. When trying to access a specific hosted databasea by address they get "database.fp7 could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host.".


This isn't true because we can quite FM Advanced and access it through FM Pro. Other people in the office can access it as well.


I've gone through the tutorials and help files and they only seem to list obvious problems like "check that ethernet is working". What could be specifically wrong with FM Advanced that causes it to not connect?
