FileMaker and Network Issues with Mavericks

TIM CIMBURA has information on Mavericks causing FileMaker network issues and disconnects:

We’ve noticed some issues lately with some FileMaker clients running on Mac OS 10.9 Mavericks. They include random disconnects from the server. The following error messages may appear as a symptom of this issue:

“Communication with the host was interrupted and could not be re-established. All affected windows will be closed.”


“Client "xxxx (XXXXXXXXXX) [x.x.x.x]” no longer responding. Connection closed. (Error 51)”

Mavericks includes a feature called “App Nap” that can power down apps when you they’re not in use to conserve battery life. For most apps this is fine, but forFileMaker it can cause issues.

This is a feature of Mavericks that is new to me.  Good catch, Tim!  And if the trouble persists, there is a list of other handy fixes to try.
