      Create a shortcut of remote FileMaker pro database

      Post

           I am looking for a solution to create a desktop shortcut to open a remotely stored fileMaker database.  My remote server's format looks like this: "fmnet:/mars.........edu/databasename. I am using FileMaker 12.

           I saw some of the solutions and try to follow it. I created a desktop shortcut and gave a location I got from File->Send->Database Link.

           The link I got is different, ie.: "fmp://mars........edu/Database.fmp12". I used this link as my location. 

           The issue is, FileMaker is opening but I not the database. 

           Its seems to very simple steps, but it is not working.. I don't know which step/detail I am missing.

           Can anyone explain me the exact steps to create a shortcut to open remote database?
