That's a great description. Thanks!
I want to install a custom certificate on my FileMaker server, but my server setup is not the same as in your example. Currently the full computer name in windows is not the same as the FQDN prepared for WebDirect access. The domains are different and the computer name is not the same as the subdomain in FQDN:
- subdomain name (access to WebDirect from the internet): subdomain.domain1.com
- full computer name (Windows): computer1.domain2.com
Does the full computer name need to match the FQDN?
None of our Windows servers are named using the FQDN, they just use simple names. We believe that the FileMaker Server name in the admin console does have to be the FQDN (and can be edited after setup if needed) for FM Pro/Go clients, but this does not affect WebDirect.
I hope this helps.
