**EDIT**


I am now just trying to use INSERT FILE on the server but am having troubles - see my latest reply if you can offer any insights!

 

**Original post below**

 

I have a filemaker database file hosted on a filemaker Server 13, with a download database link via MirrorSync. I would like my users to be able to download the latest file from that link, but I am struggling. The users can go to the website on safari and the download works fine, but I am trying to get the functionality within filemaker GO.

 

So far I have tried Insert From URL - trying to put the new file into a container filed

 

Then I tried Open URL - but it doesnt seem to work correctly unless I press "open in safari".

 

Lastly, I tried a web viewer, which seemed to work but then I got a "frame load interrupted" error message each time. Works fine on desktop, but not in FM GO.

 

Any thoughts on how I could accomplish this?
