Software Description

This software replaces the SSL networking certificate file for FileMaker Server 9 or FileMaker Server 9 Advanced. It also fixes a problem that could cause the Admin Console to fail to launch on a 64-bit Intel-based Mac running OS X 10.5.x with Java 6 installed.

Updater Details

The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate used for secure communication with FileMaker Server has been replaced with an SSL certificate with valid end dates. This addresses an issue where the end date would potentially be invalid, which would result in connection failures to some FileMaker Server hosts.
