    FileMaker Go & Windows Host

    FMT,

    Can an iPad running FilMaker Go connect remotely to a database being hosted on a Windows machine? Can it be hosted either on FM Server or PMP? I know this works fine with a databae hostd on a Mac, just want to check that it will work with Windows.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sure you can connect an IOS device to a PC FileMaker sharing (peer-to-peer). Whether or not its a good idea is a whole other issue.

    Yes, you can have a Windows host running FileMaker Server and have an iPad or iPhone connect to it.
