Filemaker Server Concurrent Connections

What are FileMaker Server concurrent connections?

FileMaker Server concurrent connections are a paid-for add-on to your FileMaker Server that allow your users to access FileMaker solutions on your server from:  1)  the FileMaker Go app for iPad or iPhone     2)  any device running FileMaker WebDirect in a web browser

How many FileMaker Server concurrent connections do I need to buy?

You only need to buy as many connections that occur simultaneously from FileMaker Go and/or web browser users. If your users will be connecting at the same time for most of the time then it’s a good bet to buy as many connections as you have users. However, if your users overlap their usage for 50% of the time then you would only need about 50% of the user number.

What happens if I reach the concurrent connections limit on my FileMaker Server?

Once your FileMaker Server reaches the limit of concurrent connections you have purchased it will refuse any further connections from FileMaker Go or FileMaker WebDirect users.
