      Connect to IWP when Main Computer is Off

      Post

           Hi,

           The connection to our database is working great.

           The problem is when the computer that hosts the original file is off-line (after business hours) other users cannot access the database through IWP. Is there a way to ammend this so the database shows up on other employee's computers when I'm away?

               If the Computer where the file is stored is  not on, there is absolutely no way for anyone to access it without first turining on the computer. And they should then launch either FileMaker or Filemaker Server on that computer to host it before others try to access it from a web browser or FileMaker Pro client.

               You'll need to find a way to keep your file on a computer that does not power down after hours.
