Can see Host but not File when Opening Remote Database File
Hi, have just spent a couple of hours browsing posts with similar issues but cannot resolve the problem I am having. Here is the issue:
I have FM Pro 11 on 3 machines all connected to a home network.
The host machine is a Mac and I have 2 Windows 7 machines.
On the first Windows machine, disabling the firewall allows me to see and access a FMPro file on the Mac by using Open Remote. I have tried to change the firewall settings butI can't seem to find a way to access the database while the firewall (Symantec AV) is turned on. This is not too big an issue as I do not intend to continue using FMpro on this machine if I can resolve the main issue below.
On the second Windows machine I can see the host Mac listed as a Local Host but there are no available files. This is so strange as I can't figure out what is different between the two Windows machines and why I cannot see the available files on the second machine. I have tried the following:
1. Disbling the firewall (Panda)
2. Checking for server.pem in the FilemakerPro11 folder
3. Ensuring sharing settings (HomeGroup Settings) match my other Wondows machine.
4. The 2 Windows machines can see eachothers files using Open Remote once the firewall is turned off on the first Windows machine
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
