Help please.


I have successfully used Instant Web Publishing to publish my database. I can access it from Safari without a problem. But I have tried to access it using Chrome, IE and Firefox from my laptop and from another computer with no luck. I am getting a "can't open this page" message.


On the host computer: I tried opening the 591 port, which is what I'm using. I tried turning off the firewall.


The database is in filemaker 8.5.


Any thoughts here?


thanks much, ee
