I'm running File Maker Pro 2.1 on Windows NT 3.51 ... During the FMPRO setup
I specified NetBIOS using the built-in NetBEUI protocol. I am also set as
multi user from the file menu. Even though I am the first one to open a
file it is opened as a guest instead of a host.
I've tried setting up FMPRO specifing the IPX/SPX Protocol but when i do
that i dont have the multi-user option.. ie. it is dimmed. And the file
is opened as neither a guest or host. The readme file also mentions that
the only network support in this version of FileMaker Pro is NetBIOS.
So I know I am using the correct network protocol. Why cant i open a file
as a host.
Please respond via email.. thank you
