FileMaker Pro and Pro Advanced can perform hosting for IWP or ODBC/JDBC for a small number of clients. For more than nine connections, organizations need to install FileMaker Server 12 Advanced. It can host up to 50 ODBC/JDBC connections, 200 Custom Web Publishing sessions, 100 IWP sessions, and an unrestricted number of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go clients.
