We had the same problem as Graham with an XML request. Changing the external declaration from fmnet:/sameserver/MyFile to file:MyFile caused it to work.
In both my case and Graham's, the process is running on the server. The server sees that the external file is accessed on the server "sameserver", and doesn't realize that this is actually itself. Since FileMaker Server doesn't know how to talk to other FileMaker servers in this way, it thinks it can't open the file on the "other server."
