Title

Data Source Pass Username and password to Another Filemaker Database

Post

     OK Folks.. I need to know if this feature is available and I am just missing the mark.

     I am looking to lock down all the filemaker files on the hosted server, but dont want to prompt the user for any credentials. (keep reading..)

     I have embeded the user and password in shortcuts for the desktops and use the app maker program and embed the user and password for all the Go Devices.  This works great!!

     Issue:

     The issue I am having is I also have an external datasource I am using, this is another filemaker database on the hosted server.  I can't seem to get any credentials to go through automatically..??

     example: fmnet:/Admin:Admin@ip address/hostedfile

     I would think it is possible since all the others can pass credentials..??

     Thanks,

     JP
