AirPrint is an Apple technology that lets applications create full-quality printed output using Apple’s driverless printing architecture. All iOS built-in apps that support printing use AirPrint. Apps on the App Store that use the iOS printing system also use AirPrint.

AirPrint iOS requirements

To use AirPrint, you need one of the following devices with the latest version of iOS:

  • iPad (all models)
  • iPhone (3GS or later)
  • iPod touch (3rd generation or later)

AirPrint OS X requirements

  • OS X Lion
  • OS X Mountain Lion

FileMaker Compatibility with prior versions of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Server

FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced databases only work with other FileMaker software that supports the .fmp12 file format. Files from previous versions of FileMaker Pro must be converted to the new file format to be shared with FileMaker Pro 13 and FileMaker Pro Advanced.  In addition, FileMaker Server and FileMaker Server Advanced will only host .fmp12 files.  The .fmp12 FileMaker product family is not backward compatible with any other version of FileMaker software.


File Conversion

FileMaker Pro can directly convert your existing FileMaker Pro 12, 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7 databases.  All other versions of FileMaker Pro will require a multiple product conversion.  Review the information below to determine whether your files will directly convert to FileMaker Pro, or if they will need to be converted multiple times.

FileMaker Poort Instellingen / Port forwarding (


Om FileMaker Server van buitenaf te kunnen bereiken met een FileMaker Client, dienen in de firewall verschillende poorten te worden opgezet.

Voor de gebruikers is het van belang dat poort 5003 open wordt gezet zodat zij via <ipadres:5003> FileMaker bestanden kunnen openen op afstand.

Voor de beheerder zijn verder poorten 16000,16001 nodig om de webinterface van de server te kunnen beheren.

FileMaker kan verbinding leggen via oa ODBC verdbindingen – denk aan SQL, MySQL.

Documentatie is hier te vinden, er een gratis MySQL connector beschikbaar (MySQL 5.1 Community Edition), gratis registratie is vereist om deze te downloaden.

De connector is 32/64 bit.

Hardware Requirements

Database Server
Minimum Recommended
CPU: Dual Core
Hard Drive: 80 GB or more, dependent on file size, requires minimum 10 GB free space
CPU: 4-Core
Hard Drive: 80 GB or more, dependent on file size, requires minimum 10 GB free space

Concurrent connections

FileMaker WebDirect is accessed using concurrent connections in FileMaker Server 13. One concurrent connection comes with FileMaker Server 13 and additional connections can be purchased through the Server Admin Console or the FileMaker Store. Learn more about concurrent connections.

Recommended Hardware Configurations:

FileMaker WebDirect may require a second machine to be configured as a Web Publishing Server. The number of concurrent users accessing your solution determines the server machine configuration.

Recommended Web Publishing Server Configuration
Number of FileMaker WebDirect concurrent users RAM CPU
1-6 Second machine is not required, install on database server
7-16 8 GB 4-Core
16-26 12 GB 8-Core
27-50 16 GB 12-Core

See the Server Getting Started Guide for more information on machine configurations.


The table below lists the tested and theoretical maximum simultaneous connection limits for FileMaker Server 13. Tested maximums reflect the test configuration and do not represent a guarantee of performance.

FileMaker Server 13

FileMaker Pro 250 Unrestricted**
Custom Web Publishing (CWP)* 200 2000
FileMaker Go 50 Unrestricted**
FileMaker WebDirect 50 50
