cannot connect to remote db from 8.5 Mac client on Leopard

Post

I installed Filemaker 8.5 on a Leopard 10.5.4.

 

When I tried to Open Remote db and clicked on the server hostname, it wouldn't show the list of databases. Even if I named a database specifically, it said that it "Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host."  The server is v9 running on a Windows box

 

I tried updating to Filemaker 8.5 v2, but still go the same error.

 

I had it installed previously on the same laptop but different harddrive and it worked fine.
