The database server will always show the LAN IP, because it has no idea what your WAN IP is. All of that is handled on the network configurations outside of FM. Group start pages are meant for administrators, not really for WAN users if I recall correctly.
You could certainly roll your own launching webpage easily using the fmp:// URL protocol with links to your domain. You might even be able to copy the source code from the group start page.
If you've setup the domain already, you should have a folder under DRIVE/Users/YourName/Sites that you can drop stuff into to host.
WAN IP or LAN IP doesnt matter because we are using a domain from the WAN and the LAN its all the same domain. So if you go to fm.myserver.com you get the server no mater where you are. The whole point is to forget the IP and use the domain.
I have a couple problems with making my own website
1. It wont change when the group admin makes changes in the admin console.
2. FMS13 doesn't like other sites to be hosted on same box
3. I don't like to recreate things that should work I would rather fix them.
oh btw the group startpage is for end users. It provides a webpage that shows the avalable databases and a welcome message with links to the databases. It can be edited by administrators. Its just a friendly way to get around open remote and provides a message.
Still would love ot get the domain showing up where the ip is like it does on the web section.
Thanks for your reply
IF you have a real separate website, you can build your own HTML page on it to serve this purpose, using the sample codes at:
If you are trying to do this without a real website, you will need to tinker with the html files in the "iwp" directory of Library > FM Server. I have not been happy with the results of that, and FMI's instructions have not been particularly useful, but a separate webpage on a real site can be fully customized with exactly the files you want rather than the full default server file list.
