For the FileMaker client or host where the calculation is performed, this function returns:

  • TCP/IP if HTTPS tunneling is turned off.

  • HTTPS if HTTPS tunneling is turned on.

This function reflects the HTTPS tunneling setting when the FileMaker client or host software it's performed on was last started. Changing the setting requires the software to be restarted. See Setting general preferences.

To determine whether HTTPS tunneling is enabled on a FileMaker host, use this function in a server-side script.

Example 1

Returns HTTPS when HTTPS tunneling is on.
