Authentication failed on server

I have seen a couple of other threads on this but wanted to raise it again as my set up is really simple and I do not understand why I am getting the - Client "xyz" (Machine Name) [ip address] authentication failed on database "dbname.fp12" using "xyz[fmapp]" - error message in the log.

 

On the other threads it seems like this can be caused by a number of things such as using external account authentication, using a local "launcher" file that passes credentials on or leaving auto open using a particular account on the file.

 

Non of these apply to my situation. The file does not have any auto open settings and is using FM users for authentication only. The user name and password is correct and the connection is showing on the server as being open with the account that the log says failed to authenticate.

 

Is this actually a bug to ignore, or do I need to change something else?

 

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
