 File Sharing
I have a file that I can't seem to share between to machines.  The
file has the "Multi-User" option.   This file is on a server that has
the folder and the file's permisions open.

File sharing should be disabled on the host machine. Use Hosts, rather than
OS sharing, to connect.

John,
Why is better to use "host" rather than OS sharing ?

Basically: OS Sharing doesn't work with FM.

It introduces instability, and introduces file corruption.  It simply isn't
compatible with windows file sharing, or AppleShare or Novell filesharing
for that matter either.

Filemaker has its own client/server architecture which is optimized and
explicitly designed to share fm files, and it doesn't support OS
filesharing, and as a result it assumes that it is the only application that
has access to the files on disk, so when another copy of filemaker accesses
them via the disk (os sharing) instead of fm sharing fm can't really cope
with it, often crashing and damaging the files.
