Title

Communication with the host was interrupted and could not be re-established

Post

We randomly receive this message when connecting to remote databases across our WAN. From what I have gathered FileMaker appears to be very chatty and appears intolerant to momentary interuptions when sending and receiving data packets. Does anyone know if there are any network setting in FM that can be tweaked to increases a timeout (or similar) so that the connection is not immediately dropped? We are running FM Pro 9 and 10 running on Windows Server 2003 SP2 and Mac OS X 10.4. The problem accours on both FM versions and operating systems.
