FMS 13 Interactive content not working in Preview mode

I recently upgraded to filemaker server 13 (from 12) and I noticed a really strange behaviour with the containers.

 

I have a layout with a list of students showing in 2 columns with their pictures. The container field is set to show interactive content. in browse mode, the pictures appear correctly, but as soon as I switch to preview or that I try to print or save as pdf, the pictures don't appear anymore. And to be even more complicated, there are still some situation where it works:

 

It ALWAYS works in the following cases:

 

- filemaker 12/13 clients on mac

- filemaker 12/13 clients on windows but only for machine on the same network.

 

It NEVER works for

 

- filemaker 12/13 clients on windows connecting from distant sites

 

It used to work fine under filemaker server advanced 12.

 

 

Any ideas on how I could solve that problem? I know I can set the container to show images instead of interactive content, the only problem I have with this solution is that the size of the pdf or the print job is way to high as it takes the full size of each picture.
