 Looking for a hosted filemaker database

I am looking to host a database through our local LAN server with our DSL
link. (poorly worded I know). What I am trying to acomplish is I want to be
able to access a hosted database at my office from my computer at home. I
have a cable modem link at home and a DSL link at work. My DSL provider has
given my a static IP address that is routed through our DSL modem. First of
all I would like to know if there are any hosted databases out there that I
can look at so I can see what type of database speed I will get and second I
would like to know if there is anyone else out there who is doing this and
has encountered any problems.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Tim -

I have not used a remotely hosted FMPro database except once as a test, so I
waited to see if someone else with more experience could help you.  What I have
done, that has worked quite well, is to remotely use a FMPro database via remote
control software over IP.  With the DSL link and static IP address you have, you
can get pretty useful performance with pcAnywhere, Carbon Copy or another remote
control software package that supports TCP/IP, especially if you have a
high-speed connection at home.  Hope this information is helpful.

Best of Luck -
James

I should have my databases hosted in the next two days. What I did was
purchase a LynkSys DSL Router and set up DMZ hosting to forward all IP
requests from our public TCP/IP Address to a private TCP/IP Address within
our network. The LynkSys router works great to acomplish this. PcAnywhere
would have worked if I was the only one accessing the FMP Databases, but now
since I started working with this, all of our salespeople and our CEO wants
to access the same information and we are all accessing the same Filemaker
Server host.

Tim,

The easiest method would be to use FileMaker Server to access the
database from any remote computer. Depending on your connection, speed is  
pretty good.

A second method, which would definitely involve more work, would be to
have your database hosted on a server, and then access the records using
web pages. This is much more work to set up and probably won't be what
you need, but the advantage here is that anyone can access and use the
database without your having to buy FM Server, and without their having
FM Pro on their remote computer.

I set up a Server network for a client here and it has been working very
well for about 5 years. They dedicated a computer to this task, and a
half-dozen employees across the city access the server at various times.

By the way, my company offers FileMaker database hosting; you can find
more information on our website at http://www.longtermsolutions.com.

Hope this helps,

I am currently using Filemaker Server. What I did was purchase a LynkSys DSL
Router and placed it in between our DSL modem and our LAN Hub. I then set up
the DMZ Hosting festure of the router to forward all IP requests to our
server running Filemaker Server 5. All that needed to be changed was we
needed a public IP address from our DSL provider and I had to configure the
router to accept this address. Then for all our salespeople and our CEO who
want to access filemaker from a remote location. You open the files in the
same manner as you were opening a local file. I.E. OPEN>>FILE>>HOSTS and
click "Specify Host" and enter our IP address. Works pretty nifty. I then
use McAfee Personal firewall for the firewall protection as when you set up
DMZ hosting you bypass the standard firewall protection on the router. In
addition I use a plug in that checks to see if the same plugin is installed
on the computer trying to access the Filemaker Server before you can open
the file. Works pretty nifty.
