FileMaker Server 8 is high-performance server software that efficiently manages shared database solutions.
With ease-of-use breakthroughs in sharing and administration as well as advanced security features, FileMaker Server gives you easy-to-use, yet powerful features that will satisfy your every needs.

Here are some key features of "FileMaker Pro Server Updater":
Share databases with 2 to 250 users
Improve the performance of peer-to-peer database sharing
Host massive amounts of data
Administer databases locally or remotely
Protect your data with additional security features.

What's New:
Server performance In FileMaker Server 7.0v3 or earlier, clients could experience a degradation in performance during specific combinations of actions, such as when one client made a layout, script, or value list change while another client was performing a complex find, or when many clients were performing finds while others were logging into the database. These issues have been addressed in FileMaker Server 7.0v4.
Remote Administration Password Security When FileMaker Server Admin 7.0v3 or earlier was used to connect to a server remotely, in many cases the password was sent over the network unencrypted. Passwords used for remote administration are now always encrypted. If your FileMaker Server 7 was set to “Allow remote users to administer FileMaker Server” and Administrator Authentication was set to anything other than “Require no password”, the remote administration password for Server, or the passwords for all fmsadmin group accounts, should be changed.

NOTE : This update must be applied to both FileMaker Server and all copies of FileMaker Server Admin you use to access the server. FileMaker Server Admin version 7.0v3 or earlier will not be able to connect to FileMaker Server 7.0v4.

What's New:
Supports all new FileMaker Pro 8 Advanced features.
FileMaker Server 8 is required if you want to take full advantage of the new server-side features in FileMaker Pro 8, including the new calculation functions and complex searches.
FileMaker Server 8 is also backward compatible so you can support a mix of FileMaker 8 and FileMaker 7 clients.

FileMaker Pro Server 7.0v3.
