Accessing FileMaker via the Internet
Posted by David Kempf on 15 July 2014 11:49 AM

Note: When you access the Instant Web Publishing version of FileMaker databases, the look and functionality may be different than when you connect with FileMaker Pro or an iPad.

 

To connect to a GC FileMaker database with a web browser:

  1. In a web browser, enter http://goshen.edu/filemaker in the address bar (you will be redirected to https://fms.goshen.edu/fmi/iwp/res/iwp_home.html) to open the Instant Web Publishing webpage.
  2. Click on the database you wish to open.
  3. Enter your username and password as necessary, and hit login.

 

If you would like to directly link to a database on the web (to avoid the Instant Web Publishing menu):

  1. In a web browser, enter http://goshen.edu/filemaker in the address bar (you will be redirected to https://fms.goshen.edu/fmi/iwp/res/iwp_home.html)
  2. Right-click on the database you wish to link to, and select Copy Link Address (if using Chrome), Copy Link Location (if using Firefox), or Copy Shortcut (if using Internet Explorer)
  3. Paste the link in your message or document for future direct access to that database
