    Unanswered: Network Errors FileMaker Server 5.5

    I am having a network error with Filemaker Server.

    The files are all on the NT4 server machine, as verified by running Filemaker Pro on the server itself.

    The problem is that the workstations cannot access one of the files. An error comes up on the server saying Network Error and a 5-digit error number starting with 10xxx. The documentation I've been able to locate doesn't seem to mention errors above 9xxx.

    The workstations indicate a script cannot be found.

    Any tips would be welcome.

    Start with what the person stated. The file may be corrupt. If it opens OK
    in Filemaker on a single computer, then check to make sure that the data file is set as a remote access and data access file and of course is "shared".

    (Shaking head)

    Last night, I read almost every message regarding FileMaker Server.

    Today I am at the office and reviewing everything I've seen here.

    The file is corrupted. (After figuring out which one it was).
    The server is also a printer server and a file server.
    The owner of the company decided that he should share out the entire server so that he could "backup to another machine" the entire contents of the server - Nice thought, just not very practical.
    Finally, Filemaker Server and Filemaker Pro were running on the server at the same time, which was having fitful crashes every few hours due to the congestion of viruses and all that wonderful stuff.

    Thank you for your help. I've never seen filemaker before yesterday and your posts have elevated my knowledge and experience to a useful level in a very short time.

    Sounds like my CFO! FileMaker server shpuld be a 'stand alone' server.
