    Open Remote File

    maestrodevelopment

      I seem to be having trouble opening a file on a remote web site. I have the domain correct and FileMaker seems to find the domain but cannot find the specific (FileMaker) file. So the host is ABC.com. Then the file is in a directory as Lookup. The path I have is abc.com/public.html/lookup. Any suggestions here?

          Is the file being served by FMP/S or is it a file on a file server using the OS file sharing?

           

          If its shared with FMP/S then you do not include the folder name in the path as the file is directly served by the FM host. Looks like this in the FMP Open Remote dialog:

          fmnet:/abc.com/lookup

           

           

          If its on a file server then you need to include the volume or network location of the external server. Also the entire path to the file needs to be shared.
