Dows anyone have any idea what the mimimum bandwith required to run
filemaker over a TCPIP connection?

I'm not aware that there is a minimum other than the minimum needed for what
one is doing with the network. What do you want to do with what hard ware?

I have in the past tried networking Filemaker over a dialup connection, this
is really slow, layouts take ages to build and connection is unstable! Just
wondered if anyone had tried this and what bandwidth recomendations you
could make!

I idealy want to run a network over a telephone connection!

I have no experience with trying this, so it would be good to hear form
others. My intuition- for what it's worth- is that:
1) you should be able to get the connection stable- it's a operating system
issue, a connection protocol should be able to work more or less independent
of it's bandwidth. I can imagine why a slow connection would crash FM but
not why FM would crash the connection.
2) you shouldn't expect to be able to do much with a 56.6 mbs connection,
stable or no. If you really need to do this, you may want to optimize the
layouts by removing any superfluous objects- especially non-native objects.
You might experiment with a solution where both client and host have a
native files that only pass data via a relationship that is mapped through
the network...

If you don't hear from others, you might repost a more direct question:
"networking over a telephone connection". Include what OS and weather its FM
or the connection that's unstable.

I've done this loads over a 33.6 dial up with no problem. 15,000 records, 45
Layouts, 180 fields. Big layouts do take a while to load but once down all
is OK. Any line instability is nothing to do with FileMaker. C. Alex Lorda
is right about t{*filter*} down layouts, it does help.
Another trick I've used is to make a script so that when a user first opens
a file only one small record is in the found set. I've tried syncronising
files between clients and servers but couldn't get round priority issues
when more than one user had modified the same record. I definately wouldn't
use this approach if the line is unstable.
