I've asked the same question to http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/623e05230f, but no answer. :-(
I have installed FM Server on a Win 7 Pro machine and tried to upload a database to it (from a Mac). After a while of trying to connect it aborts with a "Connection failed." (see screen shot).
I didn't receive any answers so I decided to install Windows 8.1 Pro (complete fresh install that took me two days). After installing FM Server the second time, I encountered the same problem. I can't connect to the FM server!
I also haven't found a way yet to open the management console from another computer on the network (just a plain network, no subnets). I can RDP to the Windows machine just fine. It works flawlessly.
This is my first time installang FM Server. What am I doing wrong? Anyone any ideas?
Thanks a lot!
