I use a G3 Beige DT as a fileserver on our office network. I Installed an apple Network card in it. filesharing seems to work fine but I had to make some changes in our File Maker Pro sharing cofiguration.

When we were using the servers internal ethernet It was setup to use TCP/IP as the network protocol. With the new card I couldn't get it to work until I switched the protocol to Appletalk.

Any ideas? Will it make a big difference?

Why did you switch from the internal Ethernet on the G3 to a card that you installed? Was there a problem with the built in Ethernet?

With a bit more information the problem could be solved.. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Switched to the card for more speed on the network. Internal is only 10 Base T, Card is 100 Bast T.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for the 10/100 card. Or, perhaps the latest drivers aren't compatible with your beige G3. Better check.

FM Pro uses a TCP/IP extension to negotiate an IP connection with the FM db.

if you cannot see it on your e-net card, i would suggest the card or its drivers either don't support it or you are missing some driver component.

Filemaker TCP/IP Ext. is installed. It worked fine on the internal ethernet port. I'm assuming it's an issue with the card.

Can anyone tell me if performance is appreciably better on TCP/IP vs. Appletalk?

if the FM db is "shared" and not the full "server" version the FM performance increase will be nominal

i have done the same thing at a client

You can enable Appletalk sharing via TCP/IP in the File Sharing control panel. I don't know if this will work with FM.

Is there some network setting within FM that may still be set to the internal ethernet for TCP/IP? If so, it may not like having two network connections running TCP/IP at once. Just a thought.
