Any end users security issues with FM Instant Web Publishing?

Post

Dear filemaker community members,

 

I have plans to set up an FM database for instant web publishing.  The database will require the end users to log in (with internal filemaker usernames and passw.). The end users are patients and will not have FM installed on their computers as they will randomly want access to the database.

The end users will be issued non-personalized usernames and passwords by email prior to accessing the database.

 

My issues are the following and I am greatly thankful for any advice:

- a)  Am I correct in that I need a FM pro server software?

- b)  Do I need more than one machine as a server hardware (this will not be a remote desktop setup)?

- c)  Are there any known specific security issues for the end users when accessing the database over the internet?

- d)  Are there any additional software tools I need (PHP, mysql etc) ?

 

Thanks in advance,

Larus  Jon.
