Filemaker Pro does a very evil thing - it allows only 10 web users, and keeps them as users for 12 hours! I would like to write a script that will quit Filemaker and then re-open the right file every hour. That way it forgets its supposed list of users. I've got


osascript -e 'tell app "Filemaker" to quit'
open EvalsReport.fp5


and then I need to save this as a text file (or a script file?) and then get cron to run it every hour. Does this sound right?

    There is nothing "evil" with Filemaker. You just need the correct software. FileMaker Unlimited has no IP limits.
