Web Publishing: FileMaker WebDirect Overview
Run custom business solutions directly in a web browser
What is it?
FileMaker WebDirect is breakthrough web technology that runs custom business solutions directly in a web browser on a desktop or laptop – with no web development skills required.
What does it allow you to do?
FileMaker WebDirect provides your extended users with desktop-style interaction with your FileMaker solution through a web browser.
Web users don’t need to install additional software—anyone with compatible web browser software and access to the Internet or an intranet can connect to your FileMaker WebDirect solution to view, edit, sort, or search records.
How it works
FileMaker WebDirect runs in a web browser and uses these standard web technologies:
Supported browsers include Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Accessing databases with FileMaker WebDirect
When you publish databases on the Internet or an intranet, the host computer must be running FileMaker Server, and the databases you want to share must be open. By default, FileMaker Server supports one FileMaker WebDirect or one FileMaker Go® connection at a time. To share information with multiple simultaneous web users, you can purchase additional concurrent connections at the FileMaker Store. While there are no set limits, FileMaker WebDirect has been tested to support up to 50 concurrent connections.
