    error message-- host not available or file not available on host

    johnleak

      Hello all I am a little new at this stuff so I have a question.  I have just installed Filemaker server 13 on a dedicated computer.  I have a couple of files on there that I want to work with on an i pad using file maker go.  As long as my i pad is on the same network as the server computer everything works great!!!  however, when i turn the wifi off on the i pad or leave the local network and try to access the files I get a message saying that

      the file ".fmp12"could not be opened.  Either the host is not available or the file is not on that host.

       

       

      I have there server installed on a mac- mini -- internet is working on the machine-- when I go to the file in the activity tab it shows the file status as being Normal.  also shows that file available on file maker go.

       

      What do I need to do to get this thing going remotely?
