The Mac Mini is in fact running Mountain Lion, OS X 10.8.5 and not Mavericks 10.9.x. It is a brand new box and I assumed that any brand new unit would be running the current OS.
So that stated, the question is the same how do I enable the OS X firewall and still have access to the databases and the console?
when you enable Fireewall in Prefernces, Firewall Options will become enabled.
There you can add programs that will need to pass.
But when your mini is on a LAN, why enable Firewall when you can let a router deal with this?
Thanks much. The question is exacly what file and where is it located. In FMS 12, you added the main the FMS 12 .app file. I can't find an equivalent file for FMS 13.
I'm having the same issue with a new install of FMS on a Mac Mini running Mavericks (10.9). Firewall on - no access - Firewall off - full access.
The Mac Mini is dedicated to FMS 13 only - nothing else extraneious is running.
When I open the System Preferences>>Security>>Firewall>>Firewall options, I see a list of FileMaker daemons - a few of these (can't recall which ones and I'm not on site to verify them) have "Allow Incoming Connections", the others all display "Block Incoming Connections" - I assume this was set by FMS13 during installation. I tried setting each one to "Allow Incoming Connections" - But, no change. Firewall On - no access. Turn the Firewall off, FMS13 runs as expected.
At this point, I don't know what to do to get the Firewall operational.
Yesterday i recieved an email from Filemaker with an FMS Server update specifically for FMS 13 running on Mavericks - that may help?
