Here's my shared fm db scenario. I am running an iwp set up with filemaker pro on a windows server, serving up to 5 users concurrently via the browser environment.

 

I've also got a local copy of fm, which I plan to use to modify the db that is hosted on the company network. Nothing saved locally that is.

 

Will I run into trouble with this set up? Does fm realise it's opening a shared db and if not, how do I notify it?

No problems with that setup, assuming each copy of FileMaker has a separate activation code. You must grant one user of the served file access by FileMaker network (in the user's privilege set) and then use Open Remote after opening your local FM copy.
