TI downloaded a trial version of 14 to see if the new workflow with Filemaker Go will be useful for me. (I also downloaded FMGo 14). I have yet to be able to connect to a file being hosted on my home computer, whether inside the LAN or outside. I have tried connection over 5003, I have tried VPN connection through my iPhone, and I have tried LAN connection on the same wireless network.
In each case, I can see the file, but when I try to connect is says "File "xyz" could not be opened; the host's capacity has been exceeded. Try again later."
I have no other open connections to the file; I am the only user. The host file has an ODBC connection to a mySQL DB on my website. Any ideas?
You did not describe the steps you took to connect to the hosted database.
Here are the instruction for hosting and opening a hosted database.
Host - Server
You will open database on host computer (server). Turn file sharing in this database within FM, when sharing is turned on the host ip address will be displayed. Select the users that have access to the database. In testing I would just select all users Then Click OK
IP - Client - Note FMP allows up to 5 concurrent connections
1st connect from your local network, so Turn off 3G/4G so you know you are on your local network Open FMGO Select the Host icon , then a list of your shared database will be displayed. Select the desired database and login with your user information.
From outside network / 3G / 4G
Setup port forwarding using port 5003 to the ip address listed on the host computer when you turned on sharing. Port 5003 will have to be open on your firewall Go to a website such as www.ipchicken.com or www.whatismyipaddress.com to get your public ip address Select the network path icon next to the gear icons. Enter your public ip address publicipaddress or publicipaddress/filename

It turns out if you are using Mac OS X you can get the same facilities found in Safari to debug your code that’s running in a FileMaker Web Viewer.
I am well known in the office for being a nitpicky guy. I constantly complained about the trend towards so-called “flat” icons. What’s wrong with a little embossment to make an image look like a real button? Why not add a little color to help the user more quickly understand what the image is? A …
And one more release note, we've updated the free BaseElements Plugin to 3.1.0. This is a huge release, lots of cool new features.
This version removes support for Windows XP, so be aware of that if you're running older OS versions.
The documentation will be updated in the next few days, I'll post another note here when it's done.
Part 3: Searching the new table in the sidebar If you missed part one of this series, it describes to how add the new buttons to the home page in SeedCode Complete while keeping the nice hover behaviors in place. Part two shows how to create the new slide panels in the [...]
By remaining on the layout and using a slide control with multiple panels that are named objects without animation, we are able to keep the user in context, focused, and no surprises with new windows resizing windows in Windows. Slide Controls are typically used to conserver space by collapsing data, we are using them as a design decision to change modes in place. In each panel we are keeping the fields in a consistent order, with slight variations based on mode, when needed.
