I inherited Filemaker Server 3.0v4 on Mac OS9.2.
The client is Filemaker Pro 4.1 on Windows2000.
I don't know what the administrator password of Filemaker Pro is. Is there a way to find out?

RE: lost password

The Filemaker company used to do this service for versions that were earlier than v7.  I think they have officially dropped support for v6 and earlier but it may be worth a call to them anyway.

There are general password cracking programs on the market and I think the FM 4.x was pretty easy nut to crack.  I can't recommend anything because I've never used any of them and I'm a bit uneasy with the whole notion of breaking in.


RE: lost password

I'm looking for documentation on these older filemaker programs, but couldn't find much any where on the net. Any finding is appreciated.
