FileMaker URL not working for Guest account

I have a FileMaker file hosted a server that I'm opening via a FileMaker URL. I want to open the file and fire a script using the Guest account.

 

I'm using the following syntax:

 

FMP://Guest@myserver.com/MyDatabase.fmp12?script=DoStuff&param=1

 

I did not include a password since the Guest account doesn't have a password.

 

When I try firing the url the file opens, but I'm asked for a username and password. I can select Guest and it logs in fine.

 

I can get around it by marking the file to automatically open as the Guest account or by creating a different using and using it's username and password, but I'd like to know if it is possible to somehow login as the Guest account via URL.
