Can't Open Shared Database via "Open Remote File"

Post

Ok guys, sorry if this has been covered but I couldn't find it on the boards/knowledgebase. I've read Answer ID 6099 and all checks out.

 

Two computers on my LAN (Macs). Here is what I do;

 

1. I open FMP 10 Advanced on the first machine (host).

2. Open my database file.

3. Enable sharing via File>Sharing>FileMaker Network Settings

- Network Sharing: On

- TCP/IP Address: 192.168.1.100; 192.168.1.101; 192.168.151.1; 172.16.2.1

- Network access to file = All users

4. I open FMP 10 Advanced on the second machine.

5. I attempt to open the shared database via File>Open Remote

- View: Local Hosts

- Hosts:  Mac Pro (192.168.1.100)

6. I select my host computer

- Network File Path: fmnet:/192.168.1.100/

 

But no files show up under Available Files.

 

What am I doing wrong?
