Remote Web Access for FMP pre-v12

Question asked by Azteck on Jan 1, 2014

After developing since 1991, I am slightly embarrassed to ask this ( ! )


A client runs FMP on Macs (OS10.8)

They host a dbase called ProcessCards on a Mac.

They Remote access it on a couple of other computers on the same Ethernet network. Basic but Works great.


We now wish to access it on a web browser on a remote computer ie: over the internet.

I have now and I have in other clients enabled Instant Web Publishing and accessed a dbase over the local network with a URL such as 192.168.x.xx

But this does not give web access.



Critically: My client does not want to upgrade from FMP 9 / 10 / 11 etc.

We do not want to built the dbase into a website (daily development is essential).

Therefore what ever solution is deployed it must be possible to implant new versions of the dbase (having closed access).

Only basic security is needed but it would be a plan to have decent passwords.


Thanks for help, Happy New Year
