Hello - needing some help from you experts.


I have been running FM Pro 13 for some time allowing users to connect to the data base with port forwarding set up on my router. We recently upgraded to filemaker server, I am hosting the same file - on the same machine - just uploaded to FM Server 13 instead of Pro.


But - I cant get it to work. It says that it cant detect the file. Is there something different I need to do in the admin site to enable access to the data base? I am still learning the admin portal and havent changed many settings. Sharing is enabled in the data base though.


I am able to open up FM Pro 13 and connect to the hosted file on the machine that is hosting it - but not from any remote computers or devices.



Thanks in advance for any help!!
