Datasource to Filemaker Server 13 fails

Keith M. Rettig
Lasso 9.2.7 [from MacMini] connecting just fine to my Filemaker Server 12 on a G5.  I can connect to the Filemaker Server 12 & 13 just fine with my Filemaker Pro Advanced on my computer.
Same set up fails to connect to my Filemaker Server 13 on my new MacPro.  Says “libxml error while parsing document”.

When searching on google I am only finding links to this error when pointing to a web page but not a mention of when setting up the datasource.
Did all the obvious stuff; reboot, reinstall, etc.  No change in outcome.

All the help I can find on installing FMS 13 & Lasso is when trying to install on same machine; I have one machine for each so not so helpful.

Anybody have any idea what might be wrong?
Thanks for any leads,
Keith.

A G5 is likely to have out-of-date libraries required by Lasso 9
and FM 13.  See:

There is nothing wrong with the Lasso 9.2.7 connecting to the G5; that’s running perfectly.
I am not storing session data in MySQL db, so first link not helpful.
I am not trying to run FMS 13 and the Lasso 9.2.7 on the same machine so second link not helpful.
I copied the databases from the FMS 12 setup to the FMS 13 setup, so all the privileges are the same; so I think I covered everything in the third link.

In other words, it should work but alas it doesn’t.

Keith.

Re: Datasource to Filemaker Server 13 fails

You're not seeing the forest for the trees.

Lasso generates a request to FM, which responds with XML, which
Lasso should be able to parse.  Judging by the original error
message, "libxml error while parsing document", the first link
may still be relevant to resolve your issue.  Can you paste the
full error stack?  That may contain more useful information to
debugging the issue.

Second link is useful.  Apply the steps to a remote machine
instead of localhost.  Most importantly, it has a very useful
test to determine whether the issue is with FM.

     FileMaker WPE can also be accessed:
     http://localhost/fmi/xml/FMPXMLRESULT.xml?-dbnames

Just change localhost to my_remote_hostname, and access the URL
from the Lasso machine.

The third link looks like an abridged and modified version of
the classic PDF, which is mostly still relevant, but is
difficult to find on the LassoSoft.com website.  It contains
more helpful tests and instructions.
