Cannot connect to remote file following upgrade

Post

Hello, all. I'm having trouble connecting to a remote file with a Mac workstation that I recently upgraded to OS X 10.5.6 from 10.4.11 (Erase and install, doh!) and from FM 8 to FM 10. FileMaker has the the appropriate exceptions in the filewall, but even turning off the firewall does not resolve the issue. The machine is still able to connect with FM 8 but when I attemtpt to open a remote file with FM 10, when I add the IP to the remote hosts table, nothing appears in the available files column (this process works fine with FM 8).

 

The odd thing is that I have another workstation in the same group connecting to the same file just fine with FM 10. The difference between the two is that FM 10 was installed prior to the OS X upgrade (also 10.4.11 -> 10.5.6), whereas on the problem station FM 10 was installed after

 

So for clarification:

 

Mac #1:

1) FM 8 -> FM 10

2) 10.4 -> 10.5

3) FM 10 :)

 

Mac #2

1) 10.4 -> 10.5

2) FM 8 -> FM 10

3) FM 8 :)

4) FM 10 :( 

 

Appreciate your time and any help!
