Title

Can't discover the filemaker server

Post

So we have 2 filemaker servers on the network.  One discovers in the client just fine.  The other one doesn't show up and can't be discovered. Here's the catch, you can connect to it just fine when you specify the IP so it's up -- but we can't seem to discover it.

 

One more piece of information - both servers and all clients are all in the same local subnet so it's not a router or firewall issue from what I can tell.

 

Also, we tested the discovery protocol (BonJour) by launching itunes on that same FileMaker server and we can see it show up on the client PC -- so BonJour is running and it's not blocked. But we just can't discover filemaker on that server.  What's going on?

 

Any ideas, tips, hints?  Is there something we have to enable on the server?  Has filemaker stopped properly utiling BonJour? How can we get it going again?

 

Thanks!
