Windows XP SP2
Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) includes a built-in Firewall. A Firewall will filter or block information coming into your computer or office network. The default configuration of the Windows Firewall control panel in Windows XP SP2 can prevent commonly used applications from functioning. To re-enable this functionality, you can add the Program or the Ports that a Program uses to the Firewall's Exceptions list.
In general, the Windows XP Service Pack 3 has little effect on the use of FileMaker Pro. One exception is when you attempt to share FileMaker Pro files. In these cases, example: Livestock Sales, you need to open port 5003 in the Firewall or turn off the Firewall completely (not really recommended).
